    [Adult type granulosa cell testicular tumor. Case report and bibliographic review.]

    Arch Esp Urol 2017 Jul;70(6):617-620
    Servicio de Urología.Hospital Universitario de Getafe. Madrid. España.
    Objetive: To describe the adult type granulosa cell testicular tumors (classified as sex cordstromal tumor) due to their behavior, hardly known with a small number of cases reported.

    Method: We report a new case of a 59-year-old man presenting an adult type granulosa cell tumor of the testis (AGCTT), painless, with a 3.3 centimeter intratesticular heterogeneous mass on ultrasound, with solid and cystic areas. Serum tumor markers and extension study were negative.

    Results: Histologic and inmunohistochemical studies confirmed an AGCTT, similar to its ovarian counterpart.

    Conclusion: AGCTT are rare neoplasms with unpredictable behavior. Their metastatic potential has been described, reason why they need a long follow-up; however, they usually have a good prognosis.

    Testicular granulosa cell tumor of the adult type is a very rare tumor, and, to date and our knowledge, only 23 cases of this rare testicular tumor have been reported in the literature, 5 of which developed metastases. We report a case of granulosa cell tumor of adult type in a 45-year-old man with a 15-year history of a painless increasing right testicular volume who underwent radical orchiectomy. The patient is disease-free after a 2-year follow-up, without any adjuvant therapy. Read More

    Background: Granulosa cell tumor of testis is a rare tumor accounting for less than 4% of adult testicular tumors though they account for nearly 30% of childhood testicular tumors. Due to the rarity of these tumors, exact etiology, pathogenesis, prognostic factors and best treatment approach are not well known. The molecular events in pathogenesis of these stromal tumors have begun to unravel and these developments put forth a reasonable and scientific explanation for the association of these tumors with developmental anomalies like undescended testis.

    Adult testicular granulosa cell tumor is a rare, potentially malignant sex cord-stromal tumor, of which 30 cases have been described to date. We report the case of a 43-year-old male who complained of a left testicular swelling. Scrotal ultrasound showed a cystic lesion, suggestive of hydrocele. Read More

    A testicular granulosa cell tumor of the adult type was studied in a 61-year-old man with a history of diabetes and urinary bladder carcinoma. The tumor was composed of three areas, each with a distinctive histologic pattern: solid, cystic, and cordlike. Most of the tumor cells in the three patterns had a round to ovoid euchromatic nucleus with one or two large nucleoli and scanty cytoplasmic organelles, mainly mitochondria and rough endoplasmic reticulum.
