Abstract

Over the past 3 decades, the appropriate management of metastatic germ cell tumours (GCT) has been defined by several phase III trials. Many follow-up recommendations have been published based on expert consensus. However, common clinical scenarios can still be vexing for clinicians who are less experienced at managing patients with testicular cancer. We highlight the arduous diagnostic work-up of a suspected late relapsing metastatic GCT in a patient suffering from fatigue, weight loss and prominent retroperitoneal lymph nodes, 4 years after first-line chemotherapy for metastatic seminoma. The various explorations finally led to the diagnosis of Whipple's disease. This unusual clinical case strongly highlights the need to perform an exhaustive evaluation, with a biopsy, if a late recurrent GCT is suspected to avoid pointless and potentially harmful treatment. © 2015 S.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 07 June 2015.
All research outputs
#4,734,467
of 6,407,921 outputs
Outputs from Oncology Research and Treatment
#1
of 1 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#130,681
of 184,817 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Oncology Research and Treatment
#1
of 2 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 6,407,921 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 14th percentile – i.e., 14% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 0.0. This one scored the same or higher as 0 of them.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 184,817 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 18th percentile – i.e., 18% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 2 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
