GOMEZ GARCIA, Ignacio et al. Sertoli cell tumor, a rare testicular tumor: Our experience and review of the literature. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2010, vol.63, n.5, pp.392-396. ISSN 0004-0614.
Objective: We report two new cases of Sertoli cell testicular tumors, and a Cochrane and Medline search of cases published worldwide. Methods: We reviewed our series of testicular tumors, the stromal tumor incidence, clinical presentation, treatment and prognosis, and the experience reflected in the literature. Results: The prevalence of testicular tumors in our health area is of 0.09%, and 2.3% of them are Sertoli cell neoplasms. This figure is slightly higher than the found in other series in which Sertoli tumors range from 0.4% to 1.5% of testicular malignancies in adults and reach 4% in children. Conclusions: Sertoli cell tumor has an incidence not exceeding 4%. The most common symptom is a painless mass; in cases with endocrine manifestation, up to 10% are malignant depending on the age of the patient.
