The commonest cause of postmenopausal bleeding in India is carcinoma cervix. Other common causes are senile vaginitis, carcinoma endometrium, endometrial polyp and fibroid uterus. Sex-cord stromal tumours of the ovary are rarely responsible for postmenopausal bleeding but non-hormone producing ovarian tumour leading to profuse postmenopausal bleeding is very rare. Ovarian fibroma is uncommon. Here we present a case of 60-year-old woman who presented with profuse and recurrent episodes of postmenopausal bleeding with simple endometrial hyperplasia without atypia with ovarian fibroma (A misfit tumour).
