SERRANO, Patricia et al. The treatment of metastasic testicular pure mature teratoma. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.5, pp.524-526. ISSN 0004-0614.
Objective: Given the low frequency of testicular teratoma in relation to the rest of germ cell testicular tumors and the various treatment options for advanced stages, we report one case of advanced testicular mature teratoma with retroperitoneal adenopathy in which orchyectomy was performed after retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy, with the same pathology found in the primary tumor. Methods: We do an update on the treatment for these stages with the possibility of beginning with chemotherapy leaving lymphadenectomy for residual masses, or the contrary, being most cases treated in a mixed way. Conclusions: Without clear evidence for guidelines in these tumors, it is recommended to individualize the treatment for each patient, accordingly to tumor characteristics, probability of relapse and follow-up
