Abstract

Purpose: We determined whether teratomatous elements in the orchiectomy specimen predict for teratoma in the retroperitoneum in patients who have not received chemotherapy. Materials and Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the records of patients with clinical stages A, B and B2 nonseminoma who underwent retroperitoneal lymph node dissection. Results: Teratomatous elements in the orchiectomy specimen predict for retroperitoneal teratoma. Conclusions: When deciding on treatment for low stage nonseminoma, the presence or absence of teratoma in the orchiectomy specimen should be considered to minimize double therapy.
