Rezaul Islam, Zahangir Boksh, Shafiqur Rahman, Kamal Pasha


A 20 years old man presented with 4 year history of painless swelling of the left testis. He ignored this swelling until he started having pain in the abdomen. Ultrasonography revealed testicular malignancy with multiple para-aortic lymph nodes enlargements in the abdomen. His X-ray chest showed pulmonary metastasis. One tumor marker was raised. Histology revealed mixed germ cell tumour with a rare combination of seminoma and embryonal carcinoma. Because of this rare combination of 2 varieties of testicular germ cell tumor and extensive systemic metastasis we presented this case. We discussed the epidemiology, incidence, classification, staging, treatment and prognosis of testicular cancer.
