ABSTRACT Introduction: Vena cava thrombus is an extremely rare complication of testicular tumors. We report on an unusual case of testicular tumor presenting with inferior vena cava thrombus extending from the left spermatic and bilateral external iliac veins to the hepatic vein. Case report: A-35-year old man presented with a 6-month history of left scrotal mass and a 1-day history of bilateral lower extremity edema. Computed tomography (CT) revealed the presence of thrombus extending from the left spermatic vein and bilateral external iliac veins to the hepatic vein, and multiple lymph node and lung metastases. 3 cycles of chemotherapy were given after the left high inguinal orchiectomy. Pathological examination demonstrated a pure yolk sac carcinoma with lymphovascular invasion and direct tumor extension into the left spermatic cord. CT and positron emission tompgraphy-CT obtained no findings of metastasis or recurrence at 3 months after the chemotherapy. Conclusion: We review this seldom case and discuss the literature with regard to its diagnosis and treatment.
- Renal malignancy and inferior vena cava thrombus
- Capacitance of the rabbit portal vein and inferior vena cava.
- Hematuria in a patient with persistent left cardinal vein crossing retroaortic to the right cardinal vein (inferior vena cava)
- Treatment of hepatic alveolar echinococcosis infringing the inferior vena cava
- Pulmonary embolism due to compression of the inferior vena cava by a hepatic hemangioma.
