AB - Germ cell tumors (GCTs) are one of the more curable solid cancers in men.
Approximately 8500 men are diagnosed with GCTs in the USA. The majority of
patients survive due to the availability of effective treatment. Fewer than 400
men are estimated to die from their disease. Among those, there is a subset of
patients with metastatic GCTs receiving chemotherapy who rapidly develop
progressive respiratory failure and die during the early phase of their treatment
course. In this review, we searched the available literature for reported cases
and retrospective series of chemotherapy-associated acute respiratory distress
syndrome in GCTs. We aim to determine whether a different approach from current
treatment guidelines could be considered to prevent this catastrophic
