Microcystic stromal tumour (MST) is a rare, usually benign, ovarian neoplasm characterized morphologically in its classic form by a distinctive triad of features comprising microcysts, solid cellular regions and fibrous stroma. Variant morphology also occurs, including the presence of nests, tubules, cords and signet ring cells. Immunohistochemically, this neoplasm is characterized by diffuse nuclear expression of β-catenin, cyclin D1, Wilms' tumour 1 (WT1) and steroidogenic factor 1 (SF1), as well as diffuse staining with forkhead box ligand 2 (FoxL2) and CD10.
