Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Luteinizing thecoma with sclerosing peritonitis (LTSP) is a rare ovarian tumor of unclear etiology and pathogenesis. The diagnostic entity was proposed in 1994, but a number of earlier reports described possible cases, and some suggested an association with anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs). In presenting a new case we review the literature of previous cases to evaluate the possibility of such a link. When cases in reproductively immature patients are considered, evidence for an association between LTSP and AEDs is strongly suggested despite the rarity of the condition.
