A case of disseminated testicular cancer relapsing after 6 and 8 yr is reported, and the literature on late relapses is reviewed. About 4% of potentially cured testicular cancer patients do relapse after two or more years. Early detection is important and we recommend an indefinite follow-up, because salvage therapy can be effective when the extent of disease is limited.
