Abstract

Evaluation of postmenopausal women with hyperandrogenism should be focused to identify the underlying pathology. Clinicians should have high degree of suspicion. The spectrum of differential diagnoses could be more sinister causes like androgen secreting adrenal and ovarian tumours in one end and the polycystic ovarian syndrome in the other end. We describe a postmenopausal woman who presented with hyperandrogenism due to Sertoli-Leydig cell tumour of the ovary. Her testosterone levels returned to normal four weeks after surgery.
