Abstract

Abstract We present the first reported cases of germinoma occurring in siblings of different genders. One tumor occurred in the left basal ganglia of a 7-year-old boy and the other in the suprasellar region of his 9-year-old sister. Both tumors were diagnosed as germinoma of two-cell pattern based on light and electron microscopic studies. Possible genetic factors responsible for this phenomenon are discussed.
