Abstract

Germ cell tumors account for 98% of all testicular malignancies. Delays in seeking treatment are unfortunately common and may lead to metastatic spread. The present study reported a case of a 24-year-old man with a giant 12x10 cm left inguinal mass and a left neck mass that had grown rapidly during recent months. Computed tomography confirmed that the mass measured 12.1x9.4 cm and was a left undescended testicle malignancy, and also revealed widespread metastasis to the liver and a large retroperitoneal mass (12.6x8.2 cm). Immunohistochemical staining confirmed seminoma. The patient was treated with chemotherapy with the VIP protocol (cisplatin, etoposide and ifosfamide). Following courses of chemotherapy, the patient received complete clinical remission and was disease‑free at the 6 month follow-up.
