Abstract

The incidence of bilateral testis tumors is approximately 1.5%. Of these cases the majority have the same histological status and few occur synchronously. Recently, an increased number of nonseminomatous germ cell tumors have been reported in the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome population. We describe a rare case of bilateral synchronous testis tumors of different histological status (seminoma and embryonal cell carcinoma) in a patient with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome related complex. The patient was managed with bilateral orchiectomy and retroperitoneal lymph node dissection. Pathological stage was B1. The treatment was complicated by the fact that the patient is on azidothymidine, a drug that causes bone marrow suppression as a side effect. Because of persistent neutropenia no chemotherapy was given. The patient had no evidence of disease almost 1 year after retroperitoneal lymph node dissection.
