A case of simultaneous bilateral nonseminomatous testicular tumors in persistent müllerian duct syndrome

J Urol. 1992 Aug;148(2 Pt 1):407-8. doi: 10.1016/s0022-5347(17)36614-4.


Persistent müllerian duct syndrome is characteristically associated with unilateral or bilateral cryptorchidism. Like other undescended testes, these gonads are at an increased risk of malignant transformation. We report a case of synchronous bilateral mixed germ cell tumors in the cryptorchid testes of a patient with the persistent müllerian duct syndrome.
