Lakshmi Manjeera, Neetha Vyas M, Supriya Rai.

Abstract
Sertoli-Leydig Cell Tumors (SLCT) comprises an uncommon and heterogeneous group of ovarian neoplasms within sex-cord stromal category. Retiform type accounts to about 10-15% of all SLCTs and they are less androgenic than other variants. We present to you a 20 year old lady who came to us with features of virilisation and abdominal mass. Intra-operatively, mass arose from left ovary. Left salpingo-oophorectomy was done. Histopathological diagnosis was SLCT with retiform pattern and with a foci of heterologous elements. Interestingly, patient had undergone hemithyroidectomy at the age of 9 for thyroid adenoma. As a part of pre-operative work up, computed tomography revealed an incidental finding of adrenal adenoma but overnight dexamethasone suppression test was negative. There have been reports of association of thyroid conditions with SLCT but here we are reporting association of two endocrine glands (thyroid and adrenal) in the same patient.

Key words: Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor, virilisation, Thyroid, Adrenal gland
