Core Tip

Core Tip: This case report describes of a patient with early-stage pure seminoma subsequently identified to have a recurrence within the prostate over two decades later. We provide a robust review of the literature focused on clinical factors, biology, and management of late recurrences specifically in pure seminoma and in prostate gland. There remains a lack of consensus data on treatment recommendations for this clinical disease. As such, a multidisciplinary approach emphasizing subspecialty expert consultation and patient education is imperative.
