Two cases of androgen-secreting ovary tumor were reported. patients' chief complaints were menoxemia and hirsutism; clitorism was found by physical examination. Their serum testosterone (T) were high (10.2-6.7nmol/L) and could not be suppressed to normal range by middle-dose dexamethasone inhibiting test. ACTH stimulating test could not stimulate the high serum T to raise futher, but HCG stimulating test could increase serum T to higher level. Pelvic examination, type B ultrasonic and CT scan confirmed a mass on one of the ovaries. Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor and gynandroblastoma were proved respectively by pathology. After removing the tumor, their serum T were returned to normal level.
