Abstract

258 patients with a tumor of the testis were examined by means of lymphography. The spread of metastases in inguinal, iliac, paralumbar, aortic, supra-clavicular and mediastinal regions in general follows the expected pattern. Special attention must be paid to groin and low iliac regions in patients who underwent previous operations (e.g. orchidopexia, herniotomy etc.). In 10% of the cases selective supplementary phlebo/cavography should yield further information about doubtful regions in the pelvis and to the right of the lumbar spine; if there is an uncertain region to the left of the lumbar spine, follow-up examinations are suggested.
