Abstract

Management of extracranial germ cell tumors (TG) is emblematic of the adolescents and young adults' problematic. Beyond persisting differences in care between adult and pediatric oncologists, it emphasizes the need for effective collaboration between both teams. If the therapy is primarily guided today by adult standards, pediatricians bring expertise in long-term follow-up, justified by the increasing description of late side effects in this young population, with highly curable disease since cisplatin's emergence.
