α-Fetoprotein is a well-established tumor marker for non-seminomatous germ cell tumors. Elevated α-fetoprotein levels, however, result from a variety of clinical conditions. Hereditary persistence of α-fetoprotein is a rare benign disorder in which serum α-fetoprotein levels are persistently elevated, but there are no disabilities and symptoms. A 35-year-old man was diagnosed with pT1 testicular embryonal carcinoma. Post-orchiectomy α-fetoprotein levels remained persistently elevated without… CONTINUE READING
