Primitiver neuroektodermaler Tumor im Hoden: Molekulare Analyse und Diskussion der Entstehung


Brandt, S; Lohe, B; Vogetseder, A; Rüdiger, T; Moch, H; Bode, P (2012). Primitiver neuroektodermaler Tumor im Hoden: Molekulare Analyse und Diskussion der Entstehung. Der Pathologe:1-4.

Abstract

We describe a case of a testicular primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) with intratubular germ cell neoplasia of the adjacent testicular parenchyma. The occurrence of testicular PNET is rare because malignant transformation of testicular germ cell tumors into somatic malignancy is uncommon. Based on morphological, immunohistochemical and molecular pathological findings these tumors resemble central PNETs as they otherwise typically occur in children without rearrangement of the Ewing sarcoma breakpoint region (EWSR) gene on chromosome 22. This case also showed no evidence for a translocation.
