Presence of supraclavicular lymph node metastasis as first symptoms in retroperitoneal Extra Gonadal Germ Cell Tumor (EGGCT) is not common but this phenomenon has been well recognized and does not mean inoperable stage of disease. While there is limited literature on the management of cervical lymph node metastases in retroperitoneal EGGCT, we present our case who underwent selective neck dissection for post-chemotherapy residual disease. 6 months evaluation revealed no finding of recurrence in imaging modalities and also the level of tumor markers.
