Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Extragonadal germ cell tumors usually originate in midline body structures. We describe the first case of an extragonadal germ cell tumor that arose atypically in the right iliac fossa, a nonmidline pelvic region. Based on this case report and a review of the literature, we suggest a modification of Abell's criteria for the diagnosis of retroperitoneal extragonadal germ cell tumors.
