Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We read with interest the report of Koppad and colleagues in the Pan African Medical Journal describing a case of bilateral synchronous presentation of spermatocytic seminoma in an elderly Indian male. While we appreciate their efforts in documenting this rare presentation, we disagree with the reported figures as outlined in the report and wish to draw attention of the authors as well as the readers of the journal to the gross inaccuracies in the reported statistics. We present our data, following a comprehensive literature review, to unveil the magnitude of bilateral presentation (synchronous and sequential) of this unique variant of testicular tumor as reported in medical literature to facilitate dissemination of precise information on the topic.
