OBJECTIVES The IGCCCG classification has identified three prognostic groups of patients with metastatic germ-cell tumors. 'Poor prognosis' is based on primary tumor localization, the presence of visceral metastases, and/or high tumor-marker levels. The overall survival rate of these patients is about 45%-55%. The present analysis attempts to identify subsets of patients with a more or less favorable outcome among the 'poor-prognosis' group. PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively explored… CONTINUE READING
