Abstract

We describe a case of well differentiated Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor in a testicle. Previously, this tumor has only been illustrated histologically. The existence of a male homologue to the female arrhenoblastoma containing Sertoli and Leydig cells again supports the current hypothesis of gonadal development, and the common steps found in the male and female pathways.
