Abstract

Juvenile granulosa cell tumors (JGCTs) of the testis in newborns are very rarely seen benign tumors. They occur in association with sex chromosome disorders and ambiguous genitalia. Alpha-fetoprotein levels have a poor diagnostic value for teratomas in infants <6 months of age. Most of JGCTs are confused with a teratoma based on histopathological analysis results. Inguinal orchiectomy yields satisfactory treatment results. We present the case of our patient diagnosed with a JGCT of the testis and review the relevant literature.
