Postmenopausal bleeding may be a presenting complaint for genital tract malignancy. Benign uterine causes predominate while endometrial cancer contributes 10% of symptomatic cases. Extra-uterine causes are rare and include carcinoma cervix or hormone secreting tumours of the ovary. We report a case of 50-year-old postmenopausal lady that presented with postmenopausal bleeding. On evaluation, she was found to have a complex adnexal mass, normal ovarian tumour markers and endometrial histology was normal on biopsy. She underwent exploratory laparotomy and total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. The postoperative diagnosis was cystadenofibroma of ovary. We reported this case because of its rare incidence and varied symptomatology and presentation on imaging. One should consider diagnosis of a cystadenofibroma of ovary when a postmenopausal lady presents with a triad of an adnexal mass, postmenopausal bleeding with normal endometrial evaluation.
