We performed a morphological study, using conventional optical microscopy and histological preparations of human ovarian tissue included in paraffin blocks. These are samples obtained and used for clinical purposes, with complete patient anonymity. We have focused the study on the Leydig cells of the ovary, its non-tumor pathology and its possible relation with other gynecological pathologies. The findings obtained allow us to establish a relationship between ovarian Leydig cell hyperplasia with ovarian cortical stromal hyperplasia and endometrioid endometrial carcinoma (Type I).
