Sertoli-Leydig cell tumors are rare sex cord-stromal tumors. These tumors account for less than 0.5% of all ovarian tumors. Because these tumors appear predominantly in young women (between the age of 30 and 40) and are bilateral in less than 1% of cases, conservative removal of the tumor and adjacent fallopian tube is justifiable. Recently, we experienced a case of successful laparoscopic surgical staging in patient of Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor which was previously incompletely evaluated in local OBGY clinic. There are no solid data to suggest that usefulness and risk of laparoscopic surgical staging and adjuvant therapy with stage I disease of these tumors until now. So we present it with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor, Sex cord stromal tumor, Laparoscopic surgical staging
