In this work, we establish lists for each signature of tenth degree number fields containing a totally real quintic subfield and of discriminant less than $10^{13}$ in absolute value. For each field in the list we give its discriminant, the discriminant of its subfield, a relative polynomial generating the field over one of its subfields, the corresponding polynomial over $\mathbb{Q}$, and the Galois group of its Galois closure.

We have examined the existence of several non-isomorphic fields with the same discriminants, and also the existence of unramified extensions and cyclic extensions.
