TORRES GOMEZ, Francisco Javier; TORRES OLIVERA, Francisco Javier  and  DIAZ DELGADO, Mario. Testicular choriocarcinoma with pure histological pattern: Necropsy study in a representative case. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.3, pp.287-290. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: Pure testicular choriocarcinoma is a relatively infrequent neoplasia with an ominous prognosis. Methods: We report the necropsy study of a 21-year-old male patient with generalized metastases of a primary pure testicular choriocarcinoma. Results: The aggressiveness of this neoplasia is demonstrated by extensive tumor dissemination in early stages, in which testicular clinical manifestations are often absent. Conclusions: In front of any choriocarcinoma it is imperative to perform an extensive sampling of the lesion with the aim to detect possible foci of germ cell neoplasia which constitute a mixed pattern.

Keywords : Testicular; Choriocarcinoma; Pure.
