Abstract

TAPIA E, Oscar; MATUS O, Claudio  and  VILLASECA H, Miguel. Large cell calcifying Sertoli cell tumor: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2011, vol.139, n.10, pp.1330-1335. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872011001000012.

Sertoli Cell Tumors are less than 1% of all testicular tumors. We report a 14-year-old male presenting with a left testicular mass. Orchiectomy was carried out and the pathological study informed a large cell calcifying Sertoli cell tumor (LCCSCT). Its association with the Carney complex and Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome was subsequently discarded. Surgical excision was completed with a radical orchiectomy. After eight months of follow up, there is no evidence of tumor relapse.

Keywords : Adolescent; Orchiectomy; Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor.
