Abstract

Spontaneous regression or the "˜burned-out' phenomenon of testicular germ cell tumors is well-recognized but a rare clinical entity of which few reports exist. Tumors with the "˜burned-out' phenomenon are found in metastatic sites, not in the testis. We report a 33-year-old patient who presented with liver choriocarcinoma and a retroperitoneal mass with the "˜burned-out' phenomenon in the testis.
