androblastoma

androblastoma

 [an″dro-blas-to´mah]
a rare, generally benign sex cord tumor of the ovary. More than 60 per cent are associated with virilization (such as hirsutism, hoarsening of the voice, and clitorimegaly); others may produce estrogen; and 15 per cent have no clinically obvious hormonal activity. Called also Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor.

androblastoma

/an·dro·blas·to·ma/ (an″dro-blas-to´mah)
1. a rare benign tumor of the testis histologically resembling the fetal testis; there are three varieties: diffuse stromal, mixed (stromal and epithelial), and tubular (epithelial). The epithelial elements contain Sertoli cells, which may produce estrogen and thus cause feminization.

an·dro·blas·to·ma

(an'drō-blas-tō'mă)
1. A testicular tumor microscopically resembling fetal testis, with varying proportions of tubular and stromal elements; the tubules contain Sertoli cells, which may cause feminization.
