Sex cord-stromal tumors are rare testicular tumors. A few of sex cord-stromal tumors are malignant and may be detected as metastatic at initial diagnosis. Although the standard treatment is inguinal orchiectomy, testis sparing surgery is recommended for masses that have benign characteristics on frozen section analysis. The aim of this review was to evaluate the currently accepted standart and alternatives treatment modalities for sex cord-stromal tumors. (Bulletin of Urooncology 2014;13:153-156)
