PURPOSE: To evaluate the clinical characteristics and hospital outcomes of critically ill patients with testicular cancer (TC) admitted to an oncological intensive care unit (ICU).

METHODS: Prospective observational study from February 2008 to February 2015 in the ICU of the Instituto Nacional de Cancerologia (INCan) located in Mexico City. There were no interventions. Sixty patients with TC were admitted to the ICU. Continuous variables are expressed as means ± standard deviation or as medians and interquartile ranges. Categorical variables are expressed as percentage. Student’s t-test or the Mann-Whitney U-test were used to compare continuous variables, and the chisquared or Fisher’s exact test was used to compare categorical variables. Cox proportional hazards univariate and multivariate analysis were used to identify factors with potential prognostic significance with 6-month survival. Results were reported using hazard ratios (HRs) and corresponding 95% confidence interval (CI). A two-sided P-value <0.05 was used to determine statistical significance.
