An ovarian neoplasm composed of luteal cells derived from luteinized granulosa cells and theca cells. Luteomas respond to gonadotropins, and vary in their hormone production (progesterone; estrogens; or androgens). During pregnancy, a transient type of luteoma may develop due to an exaggerated luteinization of the ovary.
