    Adolescent and Young Adult Testicular Germ Cell Tumors: Special Considerations.
    Adv Urol 2018 31;2018:2375176. Epub 2018 Jan 31.
    Department of Surgery, Division of Urology, University of Colorado School of Medicine and Children's Hospital Colorado, Aurora, CO, USA.
    While testicular germ cell tumors (T-GCTs) make up only 0.5% of pediatric malignancies and less than 2% of adult malignancies, they comprise 14% of adolescent malignancies, making it the most common solid tumor in this age group. The transition in incidence at this age is also accompanied by a transition in tumor histology with adolescents having mostly pure embryonal carcinoma and mixed nonseminomatous germ cell tumors.

    Pediatric Germ Cell Tumors: A Developmental Perspective.
    Adv Urol 2018 4;2018:9059382. Epub 2018 Feb 4.
    Department of Pediatrics, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX 75390, USA.
    Germ cell tumors (GCTs) arising in infants, children, and adolescents present a set of special challenges. GCTs make up about 3% of malignancies in children aged 0-18 and nearly 15% of cancers in adolescents.
