LLARENA IBARGUREN, Roberto; AZURMENDI SASTRE, Víctor; PADILLA NIEVA, Jesús  and  PERTUSA PENA, Carlos. Non germinal cell testicular tumors. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2005, vol.58, n.10, pp.1031-1034. ISSN 0004-0614.

OBJECTIVES: We report a review of all patients with testicular tumors undergoing surgery in our Hospital over a 13 year period. There were 151 cases, 50 of them were reported as non germ cell tumors (33%). METHODS/RESULTS: 42% of them were haematopoietic tumors, lymphomas and leukemias. 30% of them were non neoplastic tumors, including vascular tumors and granulomatous orchitis. 12% were identified as Leydig or Sertoli cell tumors. 10% were metastases. CONCLUSIONS: Non germ cell tumors were more frequent in adults (78%) than in children (22%). Among children, 82% of the neoplasias were leukemic infiltration of the testicle. Non germ cell tumors do not imply a better prognosis.
