No parece haber referencias en español en internet para este tipo de tumor ovárico, pero sí en portugués:

Notes to answerer
Asker: Ya, yo no he conseguido encontrar nada tampoco. El problema es que no hay contexto, es una patente y como sabéis, siempre hay una parte en la que se dedican a enumerar enfermedades y enfermedades que se pueden tratar con el "nuevo invento", pero sin contexto alguno, solo se que son tumores de ovario...

neutral  Neil Ashby: Hi Rafael, this is the only ref. to "célula de Hill", plus it's a translation from a patent written by a Chinese author....

hill cell tumors [germ cell tumors]
tumores de células germinales

Ovarian germ cell tumor is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the germ (egg) cells of the ovary. Signs of ovarian germ cell tumor are swelling of the abdomen or vaginal bleeding after menopause.

Well in that case I think you'll have to ask the client; there is very little, if any, information about "hill cells" or "hill cell tumors" on the Internet. Good luck and please let us know what the client says, if anything.

Asker: Esto es todo lo que tengo de contexto, pero si fuera de células germinales lo pondrían como tal porque es una patente y son muy literales: Examples of cellular proliferative and/or differentiative disorders of the ovary include, but are not limited to, ovarian tumors such as, tumors of coelomic epithelium, serous tumors, mucinous tumors, endometrioid tumors, clear cell adenocarcinoma, cystadenofibroma, Brenner tumor, surface epithelial tumors; germ cell tumors such as mature (benign) teratomas, monodermal teratomas, immature malignant teratomas, dysgerminoma, endodermal sinus tumor, choriocarcinoma; sex cord-stomal tumors such as, granulosa-theca cell tumors, thecomafibromas, androblastomas, hill cell tumors, and gonadoblastoma; and metastatic tumors such as Krukenberg tumors.

Asker: Yes, I have already done it, but they do not always answer to the queries. if they do, I will let you know. In the meantime, I chose "células de Hill", because it appeared as such in a Portuguese translation of a very similar patent that a peer found, in fact, the paragraph I added is exactly the same...

(typo?) hilus cell tumor

I think this could be a possibility, after all there are some typos on your text.
Ovary tumor
Sex cord stromal tumors
Leydig cell tumor (hilus cell tumor)

Sex Cord-Stromal Tumors
According to the WHO, sex cord-stromal tumors are classified into the following categories:
Steroid cell tumors
Stromal luteoma
Leydig cell tumor group
Hilus cell tumor
Leydig cell tumors nonhilar type
Leydig cell tumors, not otherwise specified

(from Asociación Española de Ginecología y Obstetricia)
1. Bien diferenciados
a) Androblastoma tubular y tumores de las células de Sertoli (adenoma tubular de Pick)
b) Androblastoma tubular de las células de Sertoli con acumulo lipídico (foliculoma lipídico de Lecene)
c) Tumor de las células de Sertoli-Leydig (Adenoma tubular con células de Leydig)
d)Tumores de las células de Leydig y Tumor de las células de hilus

agree  Chema Nieto Castañón: * no utilizaría células de hilus al tratarse de una traducción forzada. Tumor ovárico puro de células de Leydig sería una posibilidad en alusión a la misma entidad clínica (hilus cell tumor). Saludos!

Reference: tumor ovárico de Leydig puro / tumor puro de células de Leydig

Reference information:
Sin duda un typo.
La posibilidad que parece más razonable es la de hilus cell tumor (ejemplo de
sex cord-stomal tumor, tal y como aparece en el contexto ampliado por Cris en respuesta a Neil).

En la clasificación de la WHO a la que alude lorena en respuestas (ver también por ejemplo aquí https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4498422/ ) el hilus cell se muestra como un subtipo de los tumores de células de Leydig.

De manera específica, por ejemplo;
Pure Leydig cell tumour (hilus cell) of the ovary: a rare cause of virilization after menopause

En castellano,
tumor ovárico de Leydig puro / tumor puro de células de Leydig
