Showing 1 Abstract.

Testicular tumors in children often pose diagnostic challenges. There is a bimodal age distribution and the pathology encountered is age-related. The purpose of this exhibit is to familiarize pediatric radiologists with the types of testicular tumors, the different incidence of malignant tumors among age groups, as well as benign lesions with specific characteristics on ultrasound that do not require surgery. In addition, we will discuss special situations related to specific syndromes such as Peutz-Jeghers and androgen insensitivity syndromes. We will discuss the role of imaging in guiding patient management. 1. Overview of pediatric testicular tumor types by age a. Early childhood, pre-pubertal, pubertal b.
