Ovarian sertoli leydig cell tumor with raised serum alpha fetoprotein a case report

, : Ovarian sertoli leydig cell tumor with raised serum alpha fetoprotein a case report. Virchows Archiv A Pathological Anatomy & Histopathology 410(2): 107-112

A case of ovarian Sertoli-Leydig cell tumour with a raised serum alpha fetoprotein is reported. The patient first presented at the age of 27 years with a history of 6 years' amenorrhea followed by 3 months irregular vaginal bleeding. A ovarian tumour was found and excised and shown microscopically to be a spindle cell malignant tumour. The patient was treated with chemotherapy and had a complete response. Thirty months after first presentation there was a recurrence in the pelvis which microscopically showed the typical features of a Sertoli-Leydig cell tumour. Six months later a good recurrence had the microscopic appearance of a lipid cell tumour. A raised serum alpha fetoprotein was found at the time of the second recurrence and immunohistochemistry showed this protein in the Leydig and luteinized cells of the recurrent tumours but not in the spindle cells of the original ovarian neoplasm.
