In 1970, Scully (1970) reported 13 cases of
a distinctive neoplasm that was characterized
by the .formation of simple and complex an
nular tubules and designated as a “ sex cord
tumor with annular tubules (SCTAT)>>. Six of
13 cases were associated with Peutz-Jeghers
syndrome (PJS).
Scully maintained that the sex cord tumor
with annular tubules arose from granulosa cells
but grew in a pattern more characteristic of
Sertoli cells. Hart et al. (1980) and Crissman
and Hart (1981) considered SCTATs unassociated
with the PJS to be granulosa cell tumors.
Tavassoli and Norris(1980) suggested a Sertoli
cell origin of the SCTAT unassociated with the
PJS. Recently Young et al. (1982) maintained
that the SCTAT is a distinctive ovarian neop-

lasm having morphologic features intermediate
between those of the granulosa cell tumor and
those of the Sertoli cell tumor with a capability
of differentiating in both directions.
The purpose of the present study is to define
the nature of the SCTAT on the basis of light
and electron microscopic study of 3 cases of the
SCTAT. As a preliminary procedure to understand
the processes involved in the differentiation
of the gonads, a review of indifferent
gonads and testes and ovaries at various stages
of development was done because knowledge of
their development is essential to define the
nature and histogenesis of the SCTAT. A
review of cryptorchid testes was also done.
