Bilateral testicular large-cell calcifying sertoli cell tumor and recurrent cardiac myxoma in a patient with Carney's complex.


:Large-cell calcifying Sertoli cell tumors are exceedingly rare testicular tumors which can be distinguished from pure Sertoli cell tumors by distinctive microscopic features and multifocal and bilateral calcifications [1]. We describe the characteristic sonographic appearance of the tumor with pathologic correlation. This tumor also constitutes one of the conditions of Carney's complex [2], which includes cardiac and skin myxomas, myxoid mammary fibroadenomas, spotty skin pigmentation, primary pigmented nodular adrenocortical disease, pituitary adenoma and unusual testicular tumors, especially large-cell calcifying Sertoli cell tumor. We report the case of a 10-year-old boy with four of the above conditions. Recognition of this complex is important as cardiac myxomas can lead to lethal complications. Because of a tendency for familial occurrence, family members should be screened carefully [3].
