Abstract

An "expectant" approach to management of yolk sac type testis tumors in two boys led to therapeutic failure. The rationale for such "nontherapy" in light of current knowledge is discussed. The need for more sophisticated tumor staging as well as improved chemotherapeutic approaches in treatment planning is suggested.
