During the review period, a number of papers were published reporting series of patients with malignant ovarian germ cell tumors and describing the increasingly successful worldwide trend observed inExpand
The enigma of struma ovarii
This review emphasises articles both recent and past that have significantly advanced knowledge of struma ovarii and related neoplasms. Expand
Poorly differentiated (small cell) carcinoma of the ovary in young women: evidence supporting a germ cell origin.
Findings are interpreted to indicate that this ovarian cancer is most likely of germ cell origin, and it may be related to yolk sac tumor, although it is clearly distinct from the classical y egg sac tumor. Expand
Germ cell neoplasms of head and neck soft tissues: a pathologic spectrum of teratomatous and endodermal sinus tumors.
Clinical, pathologic and immunohistochemical findings in six germ-cell neoplasms occurring in the neck and facial areas of six children with teratomas containing one or another element of endodermal sinus tumor are reported. Expand
Large cell calcifying Sertoli cell tumor of the testis: contrasting features of six malignant and six benign tumors and a review of the literature.
There were strong associations of malignant behavior with size >4 cm, extratesticular growth, gross or microscopic necrosis, high-grade cytologic atypia, vascular space invasion, and mitotic rate greater than three mitoses per 10 high-power fields; all malignant cases exhibited at least two of these features, whereas all benign cases lacked any of them.

Ovarian Yolk Sac Tumors in Older Women Arising From Epithelial Ovarian Tumors or With No Detectable Epithelial Component
Neoplasms with a YST component in older women are less responsive to the chemotherapy currently used for ovarian germ cell tumors; therefore, adjuvant therapy should include platinum-based chemotherapy designed to treat both epithelial ovarian cancer and germ cell tumor tumors. Expand
Intermediate filament proteins in human testis and testicular germ-cell tumors.
It is considered that antibodies to intermediate filaments are suitable tools to characterize the differentiation patterns of testicular germ-cell tumors and have the potential to aid in the differential diagnosis especially between seminoma and embryonal carcinoma. Expand
Diffuse malignant peritoneal mesothelioma in a 13-year-old girl. Report of a case and review of the literature.
The patient's condition gradually deteriorated and she died 8 months after diagnosis in spite of administration of combination chemotherapy, which was revised to malignant peritoneal mesothelioma. Expand
Serum alphafetoprotein (AFP) in patients with germ cell tumors of the gonads and extragonadal sites: Correlation between endodermal sinus (yolk sac) tumor and raised serum AFP
Serum AFP is a very good tumor marker in patients with germ cell tumors composed of or containing endodermal sinus (yolk sac) tumor, irrespective of their location. Expand
