On the other hand, there are 4 types of germ cell tumors that do not develop from GCNIS--spermatocytic tumor (no longer termed spermatocytic seminoma) (40) and 3 neoplasms that are largely, but not exclusively, restricted to prepubertal children: teratoma, prepubertal type; mixed germ cell tumor, prepubertal type (teratoma and yolk sac tumor); and yolk sac tumor, prepubertal type.
These tumours typically occur in the ovaries or testicles because this is where germ cells are - however, germ cells can sometimes be left behind in other parts of the body during a baby's development in the womb.
It was followed by endometrioid adenocarcinoma 20(13.7%), mucinous cystadenocarcinoma 15(10.3%), granulosa cell tumour 15(10.3%), metastatic tumour 12(8.2%), mixed germ cell tumour 8(5.5%), yolk sac tumour 5(3.4%), mixed surface epithelial tumour 4(2.7%), dysgerminoma 4(2.7%), fibrothecoma 3(2.1%), transitional cell tumour 1(0.7%) and sertoli-stromal cell tumour 1(0.7%).
A number of germ cells seemed to be close to the ovarian surface epithelium and were shaded from the surface (figure 2C).
For this reason, they indicated that these targeted drugs have no potential for the treatment of cisplatin-resistant nonseminomatous germ cell tumors (37).

Our findings reveal direct evidence that bone marrow cells can differentiate to putative male germ cells. Similar to neonate SCCM, adult SCCM can be used as a motivating factor for induction of male germ cell from somatic stem cells.
The use of immunohistochemical stains is imperative in the diagnosis of germ cell tumours.
