Abstract
Seminoma and sarcoidosis do not seem to be associated diseases, judging from epidemiologic data. The presence of these two diseases in the patient whose case is reported may have been coincidental. It was observed, however, that when the testis tumor appeared in this patient, the longstanding sarcoid lesions significantly increased. The patient developed neutropenic enterocolitis after chemotherapy for a non-hematologic malignancy.
