One of the unusual variant of ovarian tumor is sex cord stromal tumor with annular tubules (SCTAT). The recurrence in case of malignant ovarian SCTAT ranges from 3mo to 20yr. This report describes the case of recurrence of SCTAT in a 35yr old woman after 4yr of hysterectomy with bilateral salphingo-Oopherectomy. Microscopic examination revealed features of SCTAT. Because of its unusual behavior evidenced by delayed recurrence in spite of bland cellular features, proper long term follow–up is essential.
