Teratoma in a feline unilateral cryptorchid testis.Vet Pathol. 2001 Nov; 38(6):729-30.VP
A 14- x 12- x 6-cm (approximately 600 g) cryptorchid testis was surgically removed with the omentum from the posterior portion of the abdominal cavity of a 2-year-old male American Shorthair cat. At the time of a previous orchiectomy, a unilateral testis had been discovered in the scrotum. The cut surface of the cryptorchid testis consisted of solid areas with many cysts containing fluid and spongy soft areas. Histologically, the cryptorchid testis was composed of neuroectodermal components and diffuse immature glial tissues, cystic, tubular, and papillary epithelial tissues, and immature cartilaginous tissues. A metastatic mass in the omentum had histologic structures similar to those of the cryptorchid testis. The present case was diagnosed as teratoma in a feline unilateral cryptorchid testis.
