Abstract

Synchronous bilateral testicular germ cell tumours are rare. We report a case with retroperitoneal node involvement (stage IIb). Testis-sparing surgery, followed by systemic FEB chemotherapy, was performed instead of bilateral radical orchiectomy plus retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy. A good quality of life was obtained. Management of the case and review of the literature are presented.
