An ovarian adenofibroma is a type of ovarian epithelial tumor. Many authors however overlap this entity with an ovarian cystadenofibroma and consider these tumors often as part of an adenofibroma - cystadenofibroma spectrum.
Adenofibromas are benign compound tumors composed of intermingling neoplastic epithelial cells as well as fibroblasts which are present in varying proportions.
