ABSTRACT
Anterior mediastinal teratoma was removed from the right hemithorax of a 15-year-old male patient presenting initially with right chest discomfort and hemoptysis. He was died following precipitous clinical deterioration, 2 months after open thoracotomy. The true malignant nature of this tumor, that there are endodermal sinus tumor and squamous cell carcinoma, was apparent on resection specimen. The former had metastasized to right supraclavicular lymph node. A similar case has not been reported previously on the review of the pertinent literature on malignant mediastinal teratoma.
Key Words: Malignant teratoma; Endodermal sinus tumor; Squamous cell carcinoma
