Personal experience in a case of primary germinal tumor of the testis in advanced state is described. The initial treatment was chemioterapy: the patient received four complete cycles of cisplatin-based chemoterapy (PEB scheme). A surgical treatment consisted of a radical inguinal orchiectomy with high ligation of the spermatic cord at the deep inguinal ring associated with interaortocaval lymphonodes dissection. Actually, after two years from the beginning of treatment, the patient is well, without signs of neoplasm disease.
