Metachronous occurrence of seminoma and Hodgkin's lymphoma in the same patient with late-onset colon cancer

By C Porta, M Moroni and G Nastasi

Abstract

Testicular cancer and Hodgkin's disease are two malignancies sharing many epidemiological similarities, including age class and geographical distribution. However, the association of these tumours in the same patient is an exceptional event; to date, only 14 metachronous and three synchronous cases have been described in the literature. We report on a case of testicular seminoma and Hodgkin's lymphoma association, with the additional occurrence, nearly 20 years later, of a colon carcinoma
