  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 16-year-old man visited our hospital with the complaint of painless enlargement of the right testis. Right high orchiectomy was performed under diagnosis of right testicular tumor. Pathologically, the tumor showed ITMGC, which is important according to the hypothesis that germ cell tumor has intratubular origin.

ITMGC without germ cell tumor is very rare, and our case seems to be the 3rd case reported in the Japanese literatures.
