In this month’s Clinical Quandaries case report, a 49-year-old man was diagnosed with an extragonadal seminoma. The diagnosis was made on a fine-needle aspiration of a 7-cm supraclavicular mass. Beta–human chorionic gonadotropin and alpha-fetoprotein levels were normal. The only cancer history for this patient was a basal cell carcinoma of the nose. The patient complaints were fatigue; sensory and motor dysfunction in the hands, legs, and abdomen; unsteady gait; and blurry vision.
