The expression of the intermediate filaments cytokeratin and vimentin were studied immunohistochemically in a series of ovarian sex cord-stromal tumours (26 adult and juvenile granulosa cell tumours, 11 thecomas, six fibromas, three Sertoli-Leydig cell tumours and 1 sex cord tumour with annular tubules). Contrary to previous reports, granulosa cell tumours expressed cytokeratins as well as vimentin. Thecomas and fibromas expressed vimentin only. In Sertoli-Leydig cell tumours and the sex cord… CONTINUE READING
