Nephroblastoma in an ovotestis of a true hermatphrodite: A case report

Heyns C.F. ; Van Niekerk D.J.T. ; Rossouw D.J. (1987)


We describe a patient who presented with a painful mass in the left inguinoscrotal region, gynecomastia, perineal hypospadias with chordee and a bifid scrotum with a small gonad in the right hemiscrotum. At operation the left mass was found to be an ovotestis with hemorrhage in a corpus luteum cyst. A rudimentary uterus and fallopian tube were situated next to the ovotestis. The right gonad also was an ovotestis with a tiny focus of small cell malignancy that was suggestive of nephroblastoma.
