A 55-year-old man with schizophrenia presented with right scrotal enlargement. Clinical examination revealed a right adult -head-sized testicular tumor, multiple lymph node metastasis with marked elevation of serum lactic dehydrogenase (LDH) and β -human chorionic gonadotropin (β -HCG). Right high orchiectomy followed by chemotherapy with bleomysin, etoposide and cisplatin (BEP) for 4 cycles was performed. The tumor weighed 5,270 g, and was pathologically diagnosed as seminoma. After the treatment, the tumor markers were normalized, but he refused to undergo retroperitoneal lymph node dissection.
