Abstract
We report a case of right testicular tumor with inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombus. Due to the risk of pulmonary embolization, a temporary IVC filter had been inserted during chemotherapy. There were no complications with the temporary IVC filter during the implantation period. The patient was safely treated with systemic chemotherapy using a temporary IVC filter followed by retroperitoneal lymph node and vena cava dissection.
