Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of metastatic testicular teratoma is reported where histological evidence of metastatic disease was obtained 12 years after orchidectomy. The patient had presented again 2 years earlier but the presence of a large intra-abdominal abscess delayed the diagnosis of recurrence. At no time were the serum levels of alpha-fetoprotein or beta human chorionic gonadotrophin elevated.
