Sertoli Cell Tumor : Clinical Features
Clinical Features: Sertoli cell tumor (SCT) of the testis is seen over a wide age range, although most cases occur in adults (median age 39 years). Besides presenting as a slow-growing testicular mass, most cases are asymptomatic. Some patients present with gynecomastia or impotence due to estrogen production by the tumor. Pediatric SCT may present with isolated gynecomastia. About 5% of SCT pursue a malignant course and may present with metastases, usually to the retroperitoneal lymph nodes.
