Germinoma is a term that if unqualified, usually refers to a tumor of the brain but can also refer to similar tumors of other regions particularly the ovary and testis.

All these tumors share similar histology but obviously have very different imaging manifestations and clinical presentation. They are therefore discussed separately.
