Abstract

Patients with testicular cancer usually are cured if they survive disease-free for 2 years after therapy. We report a case of documented seminoma that recurred at both 21 years and 32 years after the patient's orchiectomy. We discuss late recurrences in germ cell cancer, possible mechanisms of recurrence, and the need for life-long surveillance.
