The clear cell adenocarcinoma of ovary is a distinctive tumour. Stroma rich variants (adenocarcinofibroma) of these types of tumours are uncommon. We report a rare case of clear cell adenocarcinofibroma of ovary in 37 years of female presenting with bilateral ovarian masses. The tumour contained fibrous component and was radiologically indistinguishable from soft tissue malignancy. The serum level of CA-125 was raised. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry revealed the rare microscopic type of ovarian tumour. Because of differences in the clinical course as well as management, possibility of this unusual type of carcinoma must be ruled out.
