RAMOS BARSELO, Enrique et al. Testicular seminoma in a patient with Kartagener´s syndrome. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.3, pp.431-434. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To present the association between Seminoma and Kartagener´s Syndrome(KS), and its relation with infertility. Methods: We report one case of Seminoma in a patient with Kartagener´s Syndrome, focussing on the possible relation between both pathologies and fertility. Bibliographic references are discussed. Results: Orchyectomy was performed on a patient with Kartagener´s Syndrome and testicular tumour. The pathology result was Seminoma. Azoospermia was obtained twice in the post operative espermiogram, not being easy to establish the implication of each pathology ( KS or Seminoma) in infertility. Conclusions: A patient with KS and Seminoma plus azoospermia is reported, with a great outcome from the oncological point of view. Bibliographic references are described. The association between KS and Seminoma is exceptional in the literature.

Keywords : Seminoma; Kartagener´s Syndrome.
