Struma ovarii

Struma ovarii

Struma ovarii is an ovarian tumor defined by the presence of thyroid tissue comprising >50% of the overall mass. It most commonly occurs as part of a teratoma. Although struma ovarii usually does not secrete thyroid hormones, there are cases in which it produces thyroid hormones, which results in hyperthyroidism.
