Abstract

The Authors show three cases of mediastinal seminoma, and discuss the epidemiologic, etiopathogenetic and clinical aspects of such neoplasms; they dwell upon the criteria allowing to define as primitive an extragonadal germinal tumour, and emphasize the importance of the multidisciplinary therapeutical approach in controlling these neoplasms, characterized anyhow in the pure forms by a remarkable sensitiveness to radium; promising looks the use of the tumoral markers (beta-HCG and AFP) for a diagnostical specification, for the choice of the treatment and for the evaluation of its effects.
