Carcinoma-in-situ of the testis and invasive growth of different types of germ cell tumours. A revised germ cell theory

Niels E Skakkebaek, Jørgen G Berthelsen

Abstract

The hypothesis is proposed that seminomas and non-seminomas are histogenetically closely related and both types of germ cell tumours may originate from a common precursor cell: namely the germ cell showing the carcinoma-in-situ pattern. However, it is suggested that the spermatocytic seminoma is an exception as it may originate from spermatocytes.
