Mißbildungen, Entwicklungsstörungen

  • C. E. Hedinger
  • G. Dhom
Part of the Spezielle pathologische Anatomie book series (SPEZIELLE, volume 21)

Zusammenfassung

Mißbildungen und Entwicklungsstörungen betreffen häufig den ganzen Hoden. Nicht selten sind aber auch nur umschriebene malformative Prozesse oder abnorme, Einzelteile oder einzelne Abschnitte des Hodens berührende Fehlentwicklungen nachweisbar. In einem ersten Abschnitt dieses Kapitels werden vorwiegend den ganzen Hoden betreffende Mißbildungen und Entwicklungsstörungen besprochen, die nicht nur für den Pathologen, sondern wegen ihrer Auswirkungen auf den Gesamtorganismus auch für den Kliniker von Interesse sind. In einem zweiten Abschnitt werden die umschriebenen, meist nur mikroskopisch faßbaren kleinen Fehlbildungen oder Fehlentwicklungen des Hodens behandelt, die in erster Linie den diagnostisch tätigen Pathologen interessieren, der ihnen vor allem bei Beurteilung von Hodenbiopsien begegnet.
