Abstract

Sertoli-Leydig cell tumour (SLCT) is an extremely rare ovarian neoplasm. This tumour is characterized by excessive proliferation of normal testicular structures sertoli and leydig cells. These cells are seen in varying proportions and exhibit varying degrees of differentiation. We report a case of primary ovarian SLCT with heterologus elements in a 17-year-old girl which was misdiagnosed on frozen section as mucinous cystic neoplasm. We discuss the clinicopathologic features of SLCT along with the unusual features seen in this case.
