Germ cell tumors in the male usually present as a swelling in the testis. Approximately, 1-2% of germ cell tumors arise in extragonadal locations. These tumors often grow to a considerable size before symptoms arise. A mass of primary extragenital retroperitoneal seminoma in the hypogastric region causing intestinal obstruction is rare. Though intracranial primary seminoma in an HIV person reported before, we believe this is the first case of retroperitoneal primary seminoma reported in an HIV positive man.
