[Extragonadal germinal tumor].
Arch Esp Urol. 1997 May; 50(4):407-9.AE

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

Extragondal germ cell tumors are rare and have a high affinity for the midline structures. Herein we describe a young, male patient with a retroperitoneal primary tumor.

METHODS/RESULTS

The unorthodox form of presentation of germ cell tumors corroborates their embryologic gonadal origin which is distant from the site of presentation.

CONCLUSION

The diagnostic algorithm, chemotherapeutic and surgical treatment guidelines utilized in the management of primary gonadal germ cell tumors with retroperitoneal involvement remain applicable in this rare form of presentation.
