AIM: In advanced seminoma the management of residuals after completion of chemotherapy is controversial. Some centres routinely perform surgery for lesions > or =3 cm diameter, others recommend surgery solely if the residual fail to shrink or show even growth. This study prospectively investigates whether FDG PET can improve the prediction of viable tumour in post-chemotherapy seminoma residuals. MATERIALS AND METHODS: After an expansion of a previous study population, 54 patients from eight centres with metastatic seminoma and a CT-documented mass after chemotherapy were included in the study...

We report the case of a 33-year-old man presenting with a retroperitoneal seminoma secondary to a testicular tumor which had completely and spontaneously disappeared (burned-out or shrinking seminoma). Ultrasound only showed a fibrous scar in the right testis. A careful study of the testicles should be considered in all male retroperitoneal tumor, even if they are asymptomatic, to exclude an occult cancer or more rarely a spontaneously involuted tumor. Testicular ultrasonography is today the gold-standard technique and any parenchymal echostructure abnormality should be verified histologically...

We report 2 cases of testicular seminoma with unusual but dissimilar clinical presentations, which may represent different stages of spontaneous regression of a primary testicular seminoma, the so-called 'shrinking seminoma'. The aetiology of this phenomenon is discussed. These cases also illustrate that, like enlargement, reduction in the size of a testicle warrants investigation for malignancy.
