Article Title: Laparoscopic resection of intra-abdominal testicular tumor
Abstract: Intra-abdominal testicular neoplasms are difficult to diagnose, with open surgical exploration and excision the traditional mode of therapy. We report a patient with an intra-abdominal seminoma resected laparoscopically. In patients who present without evidence of retroperitoneal adenopathy, laparoscopy can be used for diagnosis, and with minimally invasive surgical techniques, to resect these tumors.
