Recurrent ovarian Sertoli–Leydig cell tumor in a child with Peutz–Jeghers syndrome



abstract

 We present a female child with Peutz–Jeghers syndrome (PJS) with a recurrent ovarian Sertoli–Leydig cell tumor (SLCT). SLCTs are relatively rare sex cord neoplasms that can occur in PJS. The patient was an African-American female who first presented at the age of 3 years with precocious puberty, and then at the age of 17 years with abdominal pain and irregular menses. In each case, she had resection of the mass, which included oophorectomy. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case in a child with PJS to have a recurrent ovarian SLCT.
