Introduction: Sertoli Leydig Cell Tumour of the ovary is an extremely rare tumour that belongs to a group of Sex Cord Stromal tumours of the ovary. It accounts for less than 0.5% of all primary ovarian neoplasms. Very few cases are documented in the literature so far. Hence we report a case of Sertoli Leydig Cell Tumour of intermediate grade differentiation involving the left ovary in a 26 years old nulliparous woman who presented with menstrual irregularity and virilizing features.
