Hyperandrogenism is a common disorder among women in the reproductive age group. One of the rare causes for androgen excess is sex cord- stromal tumors of the ovary. These are usually unilateral.

This, to the best of our knowledge, is the first case of bilateral thecoma presenting as hirsutism in a premenopausal woman.
