Patient Data

Age: 20 years
Gender: Male

Note: This case has been tagged as "legacy" as it no longer meets image preparation and/or other case publication guidelines.



MRI showed patchy hypointensities within the right testicle on T2-weighted images, but no circumscript lesion. T1-weighted imaging didn't clearly show an abnormality. After contrast, a rim-enhancing mass with central necrosis could be seen. 

Case Discussion

Orchiectomy was performed. A mixed germ cell tumor was diagnosed by histologic examination.
