Our patient was treated with four cycles of preoperative chemotherapy (cisplatin, alternating with carboplatin/dox-orubicin).[cyberleninka.org]

  • Anorchia

    Before puberty induction both boys had a similar weight and height. During puberty, a slightly faster weight and height gain was observed in the affected twin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tests include testosterone levels (low); follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone levels (elevated); X,Y karyotype; ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging showing[bionity.com] Testicular biopsy is rarely indicated (special fixative required).[rcpa.edu.au]

  • Germ Cell Tumor

    Symptoms may include a heavy feeling in the pelvis pain in the lower abdomen bleeding from the vagina weight gain or loss abnormal periods unexplained back pain that gets[icd9data.com] Her serum hormonal assay revealed a low estradiol level with elevated luteinizing hormone and follicular stimulating hormone levels with normal progesterone and testosterone[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Many patients with extragonadal germ cell tumors have histories of infertility, and testicular biopsy in these patients shows various abnormalities, including decreased spermatogenesis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cryptorchidism

    The eyes open wide, the bones fully form, and weight gain ramps up.[webmd.com] Tests include observable lack of testes, low testosterone levels (typical female levels), elevated follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone levels, XY karyotype[en.wikipedia.org] More importantly, only testicular biopsy can nowadays determine which patient should benefit from hormonal therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
