We report two new cases of Sertoli cell testicular tumors, and a Cochrane and Medline search of cases published worldwide.


We reviewed our series of testicular tumors, the stromal tumor incidence, clinical presentation, treatment and prognosis, and the experience reflected in the literature.


The prevalence of testicular tumors in our health area is of 0.09%, and 2.3% of them are Sertoli cell neoplasms. This figure is slightly higher than the found in other series in which Sertoli tumors range from 0.4% to 1.5% of testicular malignancies in adults and reach 4% in children.


Sertoli cell tumor has an incidence not exceeding 4%. The most common symptom is a painless mass; in cases with endocrine manifestation, up to 10% are malignant depending on the age of the patient.
