 en Recurrent alpha-fetoprotein secreting Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor of ovary with an unusual presentation
Poli, U.R.; Swarnalata, G.; Maturi, R. & Rao, S.T.


Alpha-fetoprotein secreting (AFP) Sertoli-Leydig cell tumors of ovary (SLCT) are now identified as a distinct entity among the uncommon group of sex cord tumors of ovary. We report an unusual case of recurrent AFP secreting ovarian tumors and as ileocecal mesenteric cyst in a 25-year-old patient resulting in difficulty in initial diagnosis of AFP producing SLCT. Although six recurrent cases were described out of the 25 reported cases of AFP secreting SLCTs, this patient with an unusual presentation of recurrence is the second case in the literature to the best of our knowledge.
