Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor (SLCT), also known as arrhenoblastoma, is a rare ovarian neoplasm which belongs to the group of sex cord-stromal tumors and accounts for less than 0.5% of all primary ovarian neoplasms. Very few case reports have been documented in the literature so far. Herein, we report a case of pure Sertoli cell tumor involving the left ovary in a 44-year-old woman who under went vaginal hysterectomy 9 years ago and presented with a 2-month history of a abdominal- pelvic mas, lower abdominal pain, and loss of appetite.
