Abstract

Testicular germ cell tumour metastases may undergo "retroconversion" to mature differentiated teratoma following chemotherapy or irradiation. We report a patient with testicular germ cell liver metastases in whom computed tomography (CT) scans following chemotherapy demonstrated a reduction in CT attenuation of the liver lesions to that of cystic and fatty density. This is believed to represent CT evidence of liver metastasis "retroconversion", which offers the potential for non-invasive monitoring of histological progression.
