Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The aims of this paper were to review the literature of Spermatocytic Seminoma (SS) updating its clinico-pathological features and to present a new case of the exceptionally rare variant of this tumor known as anaplastic which only five cases have been reported. Many studies have confirmed that SS is a distinct neoplasm both clinically and pathologically from classical Seminoma and it differs from the latter especially in regard to behavior, characterized by an almost complete inability to metastasize with only very few convincing examples described with metastatic behavior. There is general agreement that orchidectomy is sufficient therapy for SS and that surveillance following surgery is the preferred management option. Surprisingly, the presence of an anaplastic component does not seem to impact on this excellent prognosis. Very different is the case of sarcomatous transformation, for which further therapy after orchiectomy is advisable.
