A clinico-statistical study was made on these 49 cases. The results obtained were as follows: 1. The histopathological examination were revealed as follows; type I in 18 cases (36.7%), type II in 12 cases (24.5%), type III in 10 cases (20.4%), type IV in 4 cases (8.3%) and type V in one case (2.0%) respectively, according to the pathological classification by Dixon & Moore. Of 4 nongerminal tumor out of the 49 cases, one was leukemic infiltration and three were reticulum cell sarcomas. 2. Two cases occurred in undescended testis and two cases had a history of trauma. 3. The age of these cases ranged from 7 months to 60 years old. Fourteen cases (28.6%) occurred in childhood and 10 cases under 3 years of age were all alive. 4. All but one case (Stage III) of 18 cases in type I were alive. But in other types the prognosis were poor. 5.
