  • Most germ cell tumors are located in the gonads however there are instances where these tumors are located elsewhere in which are termed extragonadal germ cell tumors. When primary lesion of the testicular tumor has regressed, the term 'burned-out testicular tumor' has been proposed. We herein report the first case of burned-out seminoma of the testis presenting as a cervical spinal mass causing cord compression with bone metastasis.
