A 9-year-old boy presented with left, intermittent testicular pain that was present for 3 days. On physical examination, left testis was grossly enlarged and firm but mildly tender, Serum a-fetoprotein and beta -human chorionic gonadotropin levels were within normal range, Color doppler ultrasonography which was performed to rule out testicular torsion revealed an intratesticular mass located at the upper pole of left testis and left radical orchiectomy was performed. The histopathological diagnosis was Sertoli cell tumor, Copyright (C) 2000 S. Karger AG, Basel.
