Case Discussion

MRI showed patchy hypointensities within the right testicle on T2-weighted images, but no circumscript lesion (Fig. 1). T1-weighted imaging didn't clearly show an abnormality (Fig. 2). After contrast, a rim-enhancing mass with central necrosis could be seen (Fig. 3). Orchiectomy was performed. A mixed germ cell tumor was diagnosed by histologic examination.
