abstract

  • Late-relapse GCT is uncommon and is associated with a poor prognosis resulting from a high degree of resistance to chemotherapy. Chemotherapy with paclitaxel, ifosfamide, and cisplatin followed by surgery may be effective in patients with late-relapse GCT who are not considered candidates for primary surgery.
