Incidence of late-relapse germ cell tumor and outcome to salvage chemotherapy
Antineoplastic Combined Chemotherapy Protocols

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.
