CANIS SANCHEZ, D. et al. Diagnosis and terapeutic management in germinal bilateral tumors: A report of one case and literature revision. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2003, vol.27, n.2, pp.147-151. ISSN 0210-4806.

The germinal bilateral tumor represents from 1 to 4% of the testicle tumors, and it usually turns to be one of the most difficult ones when talking about diagnosis and treatment. We are attaching a 30 years old patient case, with a diagnosis consisting in a seminoma with yolk salc tumor area’s from the left testicle, that was treated with orquiectomy. Eleven months later, the patient presented a second neoplasm in the contralateral testicle, whose histology was a classical seminoma with carcinoma "in situ" peritumoral, being also treated with orquiectomy. Medical literature is revised with emphasis in the involved risk factors and the tecniques used to treat these testis tumor groups: carcinoma "in situ" detection appears to be the strongest predicting factor. Testicular contralateral biopsia is proposed in some select cases. Even though radical orquiectomy is still the treatment to choose, local radiotherapy and consevative surgery are also an option in patients with bilateral tumor.

Palabras clave : Bilateral germ cell cancer of the testis; Carcinoma "in situ"; Contralateral biopsia; Conservative surgery.
