Introduction: Fibrothecoma is a rare tumor of the ovary accounting for about 3 to 4% of all ovarian tumors. They are usually unilateral and have a good prognosis compared with other tumors of the ovary. Case report: Here we report a rare case of fibrothecoma with virilizing features in a postmenopausal woman who presented with complaints of abdominal mass with virilizing symptoms, such as excess terminal hair growth and clitoromegaly. Conclusion: Surgery is the treatment of choice for fibrothecoma, and it has a good prognosis. Virilizing features are usually not common in fibrothecoma. Here we present a rare case of fibrothecoma with virilizing features.
