Uterine tumors resembling ovarian sex cord-stromal tumors (UTROSCTs) are very rare. In this article, we present 3 cases that manifest classical histomorphological features alongside diverse immunohistochemical findings. As a distinctive finding, one of the patients had UTROSCT in the uterus and an ovarian sex cord tumor, called granulosa cell tumor, in the left ovary, simultaneously. Problems in diagnosing such pathologic condition generally arise because of the variable histologic picture of UTROSCT and may cause problems for general and other nongynecologic surgical pathologists. Immunohistochemically, these tumors express different markers that indicate their polyphenotypic origins.
