[Management of metastatic testicular germ cell tumors].

Metastatic testicular germ cell tumors are rare entities with a high cure rate owing to their major chemosensitivity. Current guidelines should be strictly followed to ensure maximal cure rate. Germ cell tumor treatment requires multidisciplinary skills and is based on cisplatin-based chemotherapy. The current challenge for these patients with favorable prognosis is to limit over- or under-treatment. Centralization of care for patients with these rare cancers is a key point to achieve the best chance of cure.
