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

(1) Sertoli cell tumour of the testis. 
(2) Sertoli-Leydig cell tumour of the ovary.
(3) Gonadoblastoma.

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.
2. Synonym(s): arrhenoblastoma.

(1) Among the less common metastatic tonsillar tumors are mesothelioma, (4) hepatocellular carcinoma, (5) ovarian androblastoma, (6) seminoma, (7) anaplastic thyroid carcinoma, (8) pancreatic adenocarcinoma, (9) prostatic adenocarcinoma, (10) and gall bladder carcinoma.
Tumors of specialized gonadal stroma in human male patients: androblastoma, Sertoli cell tumor, granulosa-theca cell tumor of the testis, and gonadal stromal tumor.
(1) Initially, these tumors were called "arrhenoblastoma" or "androblastoma." Because many of them are nonfunctioning and some are estrogenic, the morphologic designation "Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor" is more appropriate.
