CRISTIAN PALMA, C.; CRISTOBAL, B.  and  MACCIONI, R.. New case of an intra-abdominal testicular seminoma in an adult. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2007, vol.31, n.2, pp.160-163. ISSN 0210-4806.

Objective: To present a new case of an Intra-abdominal Testicular Seminoma in an adult. Methods/results: We report a 30 year old patient with cryptochidism, that after consulting to the emergency service due to abdominal pain, was diagnosed an Intra-abdominal Testicular Seminoma. Discussion: The incidence of testicular cancer in cryptorchidic testis is 3 to 48 times higher than in general population. The existence of maldescended testis in adult population is rare in developed countries, due to the normal practice of elective orchidopexia in children under 2 years old and orchiectomy in maldecended testis in postpuberal pacients. In spite these measures of prevention, there are still isolated cases of Intra-abdominal testicular tumors in adults.

Keywords : Testicular tumor; Seminoma; Cryptochidism.
