Abstract

In approximately 25% of patients with testicular germ cell tumor (GCT), the cancer metastasizes to lymph nodes and distant organs. The initial lymphatic drainage site of GCTs is the retroperitoneum. GCTs rarely involve mesenteric lymph nodes. In this study, we report a case of a 32-year-old male patient with GCT and associated mesenteric lymphadenopathy.
