Abstract

A primary carcinoid tumour of the testicle without carcinoid syndrome was recorded from a patient aged 48 years. The tumour was made up of solid and acinar structures which exhibited strongly pronounced argyrophilia. Teratogenic structures were not established. Neuron-specific enolase (NSE) and chromogranin were immunohistologically recorded from tumour cells. The carcinoid had not spread metastases. Semi-castration was chosen as therapeutic approach. Orchidectomy was not followed by complications.
