Placental alkaline phosphatase is higher in cord blood of cases with labor than those without it (4), suggesting that labor increases transplacental maternal-fetal microtransfusion.
The diagnosis of seminoma was confirmed by further immunohistochemical studies (figure 2, C), although the negative staining for placental alkaline phosphatase and CD 117 are considered to be atypical for seminoma.
