Abstract

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.
