Sex cord-stromal tumors account for 5 percent of all ovarian tumors and 2 percent of malignant ovarian tumors. Steroid cell tumors (SCT), not otherwise specified (NOS), are rare sex cord-stromal tumors of the ovary and account for less than 0.1 percent of all ovarian tumors. The functional designation steroid cell tumors was suggested and classified into 3 subclasses as Stromal luteoma, leydig cell tumor and steroid cell tumors (Not otherwise specified).
