Endocrine testis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Each major histologic category of testicular tumor includes hormonally functional neoplasms. Testicular germ cell tumors, sex cord-stromal tumors, and tumors of neuroendocrine origin are all capable of producing one or more hormones that may result in the clinical presentation of the tumor, be useful for diagnosis of the tumor, or serve as a tumor marker for guiding treatment or determining prognosis. Pathology and clinical endocrine syndromes associated with testicular tumors are reviewed in this chapter.
