A 29-year-old female patient who was being followed up for differentiated papillary thyroid carcinoma was referred to us for exploration of any possible metastasis since her serum thyroglobulin levels were high. The patient underwent an F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography study, and a pathologically increased FDG uptake at the left lower abdomen was detected corresponding to a solid, cystic lesion on CT images. The patient had a history of primary amenorrhea and, together with…

Ovarian and Testicular Sex Cord-Stromal Tumors

Testicular stromal tumors often behave in a benign fashion but can be aggressive depending upon age and histopathologic diagnosis; tumor markers play an important role in follow-up evaluations and should be obtained preoperatively when feasible.

Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography for Gynecologic Malignancies

Positron emission tomography/Computed tomography is clinically valuable for a variety of gynecologic cancers and plays an important role in detection of initial disease and recurrence of Gynecologic malignancies.

FDG PET for detection and therapy control of metastatic germ cell tumor.

PET using FDG is superior to CT for assessment of residual tumor after chemotherapy of germ cell cancer and may have an increased effect on patient management in the future.

Ovarian sertoli-leydig cell tumors

Results and a study of published data suggest that Sertoli-Leydig cell tumors arise from ovarian stroma, and because of their obvious morphological similarities to testicular structures they should be termed “gonadal stromal tumors of android type”.

It is suggested that the high expression of aromatase and other molecular changes in the testis may be responsible for pubertal breast development and the increased risk of testicular tumor.

Testicular development in the complete androgen insensitivity syndrome

The risk of premalignant change in germ cells is low before and during puberty, and patients can be advised that gonadectomy can be delayed to allow for a natural puberty, with low risk of malignant transformation.
