|Official Title:||A Phase III Study Of Reduced Therapy In The Treatment Of Children With Low And Intermediate Risk Extracranial Germ Cell Tumors|
- Event-free survival (EFS) of at least 92% (for intermediate-risk tumors only) defined as the first occurrence of relapse, progressive disease, second malignancy, or death after the start of protocol-specified chemotherapy [ Time Frame: Assessed up to 3 years ]A piecewise exponential failure rate model for the theoretical EFS time for both the low and intermediate risk patients will be used.
- Overall survival (OS) of at least 95% (both low-risk and intermediate-risk tumors) [ Time Frame: Assessed up to 4 years ]The model for OS will also be derived from a piecewise exponential failure rate model. The distribution of the complementary log-log transformation of the Kaplan-Meier estimate of the four-year survival will be used to calculate a 95% confidence interval for the true death rate.
- Days of hospitalization [ Time Frame: During treatment ]Calculated to quantify the treatment cost associated with this regimen.
- Toxicity as assessed by the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) v4.0 [ Time Frame: During and after completion of study treatment ]The descriptions and grading scales found in the revised National Cancer Institute CTCAE v 4 will be used.

Experimental: Arm I
Patients enrolled with gonadal tumors of stage II or greater or extragonadal tumors of any stage receive cisplatin IV over 90 minutes & etoposide IV over 90 minutes days 1-3 and bleomycin sulfate IV over ≥ 10 minutes day 1. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks, 3 courses (weeks 0,3 & 6).
After completion of compressed induction chemotherapy, patients with no change in disease status or disease progression are removed from study. Patients with no evidence of disease receive no further therapy. Patients with a partial response or abnormal tumor markers proceed to conventional surgery (second-look) and/or 3 more courses of compressed consolidation chemotherapy.
After surgery, patients with pathologic complete response and have normal tumor markers receive no further therapy. Patients who remain with a partial response after surgery receive compressed consolidation chemotherapy.
Patients receive cisplatin, etoposide, and bleomycin as induction chemotherapy in weeks 10,13, & 16.
Procedure: conventional surgery
Other Name: surgery, conventionalDrug: cisplatin
Other Names:Drug: etoposide

No Intervention: Arm 2
Patients who are enrolled with stage I gonadal tumors receive no further anticancer therapy until evidence of tumor recurrence or the diagnosis of a second malignant neoplasm.
Observation only for recurrence or development of an SMN
