Non-Germ-Cell Gonadal Tumors

Abstract

Non-germ-cell gonadal tumors are uncommon in the fetus and infant [1–6]. Approximately 6 % of childhood testicular tumors occur in the neonate [2]. Most primary tumors of the testis in older infants and/or children are of germ cell origin, namely, teratoma and yolk sac tumor, and occasionally gonadoblastoma [2–5] (Tables 3.1 and 3.2).
