This descriptive study was carried out at Pathology Department, Shifa International Hospital from 2007 to 2016; all sex cord stromal tumours diagnosed during this time period were included. Epithelial, germ cell and metastatic tumours were excluded from the study. A total of 1254 Ovarian tumours were brought to Shifa of which47 (4%) were labeled as sex cord stromal tumours. Of these 36(76 %)were granulosa cell tumour (adult33, juvenile3), 7 were labeled as sertoli leydig cell tumours (15%), 3 as thecoma/ fibroma group (7%)and only one case was labeled as microcystic stromal tumour of the ovary (2%). Overall age range for sex cord stromal tumours was 42 (12-71). Immunohistochemistry was done in 41 out of 47 cases. Sex cord stromal tumours of the ovary are rare tumours comprising 4% of the total. Adult Granulosa cell tumour is the commonest tumour seen in our study.
