Isolated bone marrow metastasis of testicular tumor is very rare. Here, we report this case of a 21-year-old male who was admitted to our hospital with generalized body pain, which was severe and weakness for one month. He had a history of an operative intervention for the left testicular mass about 6 months ago which was diagnosed as mixed germ cell tumor on histopathological examination. The blood investigations showed anemia, low platelets, and elevated tumor markers. Bone marrow aspiration and biopsy examination showed metastatic deposits of mixed germ cell tumor. There were no foci of disease in any other part of the body. The patient was given chemotherapy, i.e. cisplatin, etoposide, and bleomycin. After completion of chemotherapy, there was drastic improvement in pain and weakness. A repeat examination of bone marrow done after 3 month was free of tumor.
