abstract

  • Although the numbers were small, in this analysis chemotherapy was not found to improve the recurrence-free interval of patients with GCTs, a finding that requires prospective validation. Residual disease after surgery was associated with poor prognosis. Finally, there was a significantly higher than expected incidence of antecedent breast cancer in this population, an association that deserves further exploration.
