CARRION LOPEZ, Pedro et al. Bilateral synchronic testicular tumour of different histology. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.6, pp.741-744. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To report one case of bilateral synchronic germ cell testicular tumour of different histology. Methods/Results: 37-year-old patient with left testicular tumor under study was found to have a contralateral synchronic testicular tumor on ultrasound. Bilateral inguinal orchiectomy was performed and pathology reported the presence of bilateral testicular tumours of different histological type. Conclusions: Around 75% of the cases of bilateral testicular tumours are metachronic, with only 10% presenting different histology. Histological type often correlates with the ultrasound findings, and the treatment of choice in patients with this type of oncological pathology is bilateral inguinal orchiectomy.

Keywords : Bilateral synchronic germ cell testicular tumour; Histology.
