  • We present a case of a pathologic stage 1, right sided, non-seminomatous germ cell tumor recurrence in the left seminal vesicle, 20 years after initial diagnosis and treatment. The patient was treated with three salvage cycles of bleomycin, etoposide, and cisplatinum. At 24 months of follow-up after completion of chemotherapy, digital rectal and TRUS examinations revealed complete resolution of the lesion. We believe that this tumor is a late metastasis to the contralateral seminal vesicle.
