Etoposide based combination chemotherapy is used with curative intent in patients with advanced testicular germ cell tumors. Common side effects involve nausea and vomiting (up to 43%), alopecia (up to 66%), leukopenia (up to 91%). Cardiovascular side effects are rare, and hypotension only occurs in 1%-2% of patients. Etoposide is not known to cause thyroid dysfunction. We observed a case of bradycardia and QTc interval shortening after introduction of etoposide based chemotherapy.
