Hyun Jung Cho, Seung Yang, Phil Soo Oh, Jeh Hoon Shin

The incidence of testicular tumors in infants and children are rare, representing only 1% of all pediatric solid tumors. In general, gonadal stromal tumors are one of the most characteristic endocrine tumors of the testis, endocrine activity occurs in at least 10-20%, among them Leydig cell tumors and Sertoli cell tumors are clinically important.
