Seminoma : Syncytiotropho-blastic Cells

slide 10 of 30


Comments:
Syncytiotrophoblastic giant cells are present in 10% to 20% of seminomas. In this image, two giant cells can be seen. They may be associated with blood vessels and contain areas of hemorrhage around them. They are not associated with cytotrophoblastic cells unlike choriocarcinoma. They are responsible for modest elevations of b-HCG seen in some seminomas.
