Abstract

Sertoli-Leydig cell tumors constitute <1% of ovarian tumors, mostly in young women with virilization; however, not all present endocrine manifestations. A 72-year-old female presented with an abdominal mass and no signs of virilization. Total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, omentectomy and selective pelvic lymphadenectomy was performed. The pathologic diagnosis was poorly-differentiated sex cord-stromal tumor with Sertoli cells. No adjuvant chemotherapy or radiation was administered. At 12-month follow-up the patient showed no evidence of disease.
