Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Sex cord tumor with annular tubules (SCTAT) is a rare tumor seen in the ovary usually associated with Peutz-Jeghers syndrome. Testicular SCTAT are more infrequent and only four such cases have been reported in the literature. A 28-year-male presented with infertiliy. He had a history of orchiopexy 10 years back for right-sided inguinal testes. A right testicular biopsy done to investigate the cause of infertility revealed testicular atrophy with a focus suspicious of SCTAT. The right-sided orchiectomy revealed two firm nodules of 0.5 and 0.2 cms of SCTAT and sertoli cell nodule (SCN) respectively on microscopy. He did not have any features of Peutz-Jeghers or any other dysgenetic syndrome. He is asymptomatic after follow up of 26 months. This is the fifth case of testicular SCTAT and the first with SCN.
