[Malignant degeneration in testicular feminization. Apropos of a case].

Abstract

The authors describe the main therapeutic features found in a case of testicular feminisation that became malignant. Bilateral gonadal ablation should be carried out after puberty for fear of malignancy. When cancer occurs treatment is best decided on the grounds of extension to the lymph nodes and the histological findings in the tumour. Where there is no extension to the lymph nodes, surgery should be carried out on the gonads with radiotherapy to the lymph nodes. If the tumour is not clearly a seminoma the lymph nodes should be removed before radiotherapy is started.
