Abstract
Steroid cell tumors, not otherwise specified (NOS), are infrequently encountered ovarian neoplasms. They constitute <0.1% of all ovarian tumors. They usually occur in younger individuals (mean age, 43 years) and, in contrast to other steroid cell tumors, occasionally occur before puberty. The majority of these tumors produce steroids with testosterone being the most common. Various virilizing symptoms such as hirsutism, temporal baldness, and amenorrhea are common in these patients; however massive ascites is an infrequent symptom. We report a case of steroid cell tumor, not otherwise specified, with hypertension, obesity, ascites and elevated CA 125 with brief review of literature.
Key Words: Steroid cell tumors, Hypertension, Obesity, Ascites, CA 125
