  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 23-year-old man was hospitalized because of painless swelling of left testis. Sonographic diagnosis was left hydrocele testis, but clinically testicular tumor could not be ruled out. Therefore patient under-went testicular biopsy. As the pathological diagnosis of the frozen section was malignant, left high orchiectomy was performed. The specimen showed intratubular malignant germ cells. First report of this disorder was done in 1972 by Skakkebaek who found malignant germ cell in the biopsy specimen of infertile man.
