A stereological study of the development of testicular volume, the germ cell population and the seminiferous tubules was carried out on testes from 50 boys between 0 and 18 years of age who had suffered from sudden unexpected death. Semi-thin sections (0.5 micrometer) of testicular tissue were prepared and examined by point and profile counting using a projection microscope. Testicular weight was recorded in 48 of the cases. Median volume of pairs of testes increased from 1.1 (range 0.3--1.9… CONTINUE READING
