Abstract

Patients with testicular cancer who have disseminated disease at presentation do not always undergo orchiectomy for diagnosis or staging before initiation of chemotherapy. Between October 1978 and November 1982 orchiectomy was performed following cisplatin combination chemotherapy in 20 patients with disseminated germ cell tumors. There were three patients with residual carcinoma in the removed testis and six patients with teratoma. Therefore, in patients with evidence of a primary testicular neoplasm that was no resected initially, orchiectomy should be performed after chemotherapy. Furthermore, the testis may be a sanctuary site for germ cell malignancies during systemic treatment.
