hilar cell tumour
an androgen-producing tumour of the ovary found in older women and often resulting in virilization. Such tumours are so called as they tend to occur around the area of the ovary where the blood vessels enter (the hilum). They are usually small and are treated by surgical removal, with resolution of most of the symptoms.
