Ovarian Epithelial-Type Tumors of the Testis
Brenner tumor; Clear cell adenocarcinoma; Endometrioid adenocarcinoma; Mucinous borderline tumor; Mucinous cystadenoma; Mucinous cystoadenocarcinoma; Ovarian-type tumors of the testis; Serous cystadenoma; Serous cystoadenocarcinoma; Serous tumor of borderline malignancy
The ovarian-like epithelial tumors of the testis and paratesticular structures are very rare. They are a heterogenous group of neoplasms which are classified according to cell type: serous, mucinous, endometrioid, clear cell, and Brenner tumors, and divided into benign (cystadenoma) and borderline and malignant (carcinoma).
Ovarian epithelial-type tumors of the testis are neoplasia with Müllerian differentiation that have been classified with the same morphologic criteria of epithelial-stromal tumors of the ovary.
