DIAZ PEREZ, Gilmer A. et al. Primary testicular lymphoma: experience Instituto especializado de enfermedades neoplásicas. Lima-Peru. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2009, vol.33, n.2, pp.149-153. ISSN 0210-4806.

Introduction: Testicular lymphoma is a rare illness with peculiar characteristics but with a poor prognosis. Material and methods: We evaluated 32 patients retrospectively studying their epidemiologic characteristics, hematologic values, histologic type, metastasis sites, the treatment given and the survival. We compared our results with international reports and we think that prospective studies are needed for better conclusions. Results: The average of age was 45 years old, with more than the half of patients with clinical stage IV at the moment of the diagnosis, the histiocitic pathology was the most frequent, and the time of survival was 39,543±14,451 months and the time in which the 50% of the patients die is 15±7,025 months. Conclusions: This is a rare disease, with a very poor prognosis, with a time of survival of 39,543±14,451 months and the time in which the 50% of the patients die is 15±7,025 months.
