Although pure testicular teratomas in prepubertal boys have not been reported to metastasize, testicular teratomas in adults are associated with clinical metastases in 60% of cases. Teratoma has a diverse biological potential, with propensity for local growth, distant metastases, and transformation to somatic malignant cell types. Teratoma is frequently found associated with other nonseminomatous histologies and is present in the retroperitoneum in 40% of postchemotherapy retroperitoneal lymph… 
Mature and Immature Teratoma: A Review of Pathological Characteristics and Treatment Options
TLDR
Clinical management of these tumours includes radical inguinal orchidectomy followed by Retroperitoneal Lymph Node dissection if indicated and long-term oncological outcomes for mature and immature testicular teratoma are equivocal.
Embryonal carcinoma metastasis from pure testicular teratoma mimicking a complex renal cyst
TLDR
The case of a 32 year old male patient diagnosed with a pure testicular teratoma in clinical stage I and a right renal cyst Bosniak IIF, as part of treatment he received chemotherapy, during which, radiological changes were observed at the level of renal Cyst suggesting metastatic tumor.
Testicular teratomas: a growing problem?
TLDR
The management of post-chemotherapy resection of teratomatous masses is concentrated on, with special attention to the phenomenon of ‘growing teratoma syndrome’ and somatic-type transformation of teratomas.
Pure testicular teratoma presenting as a metastatic germ cell tumor
TLDR
A case of pure teratoma of testis in an adult presenting as a metastatic germ cell tumor is presented and microscopic appearance of metastasis may differ from that of the primary.
Pure Testicular Cystic Teratoma in an Adult Patient
TLDR
The behavior of testicular teratomas is often aggressive and depends on the patient age, but there is no relationship between the behavior of ovarian teratoma and age.
Testicular Tumors in Children
TLDR
There is a growing body of evidence that shows testicular tumors in prepubertal children and infants to be distinct clinically from testicular tumor in adults, or even adolescents, where more benign pathologies are being encountered in younger patients, hence reducing morbidity of adjuvant treatment that is skipped.
Teratomas: a multimodality review.
TLDR
Germ cell tumors (GCTs) may occur in both children and adults and include a broad array of histologic subtypes, such as teratoma, seminoma, choriocarcinoma, yolk sac tumor, embryonal cell carcinoma, and mixed GCT.
Paediatric benign cystic monodermal testicular teratoma
TLDR
Clinical examination, tumour markers, ultrasound scan including colour Doppler studies, and finally inguinal exploration and histopathology were helpful in establishing the diagnosis of benign cystic monodermal testicular teratoma in a 5-year-old boy.
TESTIS SPARING SURGERY FOR ADULT MATURE TERATOMA OF THE TESTIS; REPORT OF A CASE.
TLDR
A 25-year-old man presented complaining of a painful, left scrotal swelling and an intraoperative frozen section revealed the tumor to be benign, and testis-sparing surgery was considered.
Mature Cystic Teratoma of Ovary– a Case Report & Review of Literature
Mature cystic teratoma or dermoid cyst is the most common germ cell tumour of the ovary. The incidence ranges from 5 to 25% of all ovarian neoplasms out of which 13.7% are bilateral. Teratomas

The role of retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy in mature teratoma of the testis.
TLDR
Based on the results metastases in testicular mature teratoma seem to result from metastasizing nongerm cell components undergoing early regression, as demonstrated by the high frequency of burned out tumors.
Epidemiological features of testicular teratoma in a prepubertal population.
TLDR
Data in the registry confirm the benign nature of this tumor and normal AFP levels should not be expected in infants with teratoma.
Adult primary pure teratoma of the testis. The Indiana experience
TLDR
Patients with pure testicular teratoma commonly have been considered to be managed best by surveillance, and are believed to have better survival rates then other forms of germ cell tumor.
Mature teratoma identified after postchemotherapy surgery in patients with disseminated nonseminomatous testicular germ cell tumors
TLDR
The clinical course of patients after resection of residual teratoma is described, with particular emphasis on relapse with either growing mature teratomas or secondary non‐germ cell malignancy.
Primary pure teratoma of the testis.
TLDR
There is probably a reduced frequency of relapse, which should be considered when advising patients with stage I disease, but otherwise management should be the same as for other testicular nonseminomatous germ cell tumors and the prognosis should be excellent.
Testicular tumors in prepubertal children.
TLDR
A clinical analysis was made of prepubertal children with testis tumors, and the most common of these tumors was the yolk sac carcinoma, which is a benign, nonmetastasizing disease in children and requires only orchiectomy.
Diagnosis and management of teratomas and epidermoid cysts.
TLDR
The high incidence of benign testicular lesions in the prepubertal patient, the absence of associated carcinoma in situ in prepUbertal germ cell tumors, and the universally benign behavior of the specific tumors described are supportive evidence for testis-sparing surgery versus orchiectomy, for these benign lesions.
Prognosis of testicular teratoma differentiated.
TLDR
It is recommended that the management of adult TD should not deviate from the general principles established for other histological subtypes of testicular teratoma, despite the apparently more benign histology.

Testicular sparing surgery for prepubertal teratoma of the testis: a clinical and pathological study.
TLDR
A testicular sparing operation rather than orchiectomy for testicular teratoma in prepubertal patients is recommended, based on clinical experience and the histological findings on Armed Forces Institute of Pathology review demonstrating no associated carcinoma in situ and the universally benign behavior of prepUbertal testicular Teratomas.
