Abstract :

A teratoma is a germ cell tumour derived from pluripotent cells and made up of elements of different types of tissue from one or more of the three germ cell layers. Mature cystic teratomas are rare and account for only about 3 to 12% of the total teratomas. Though benign, they can turn malignant. A surgeon should always remember the significance of diagnosing such teratomas and be vigilant to treat the condition promptly. Any delay can cause worsening of the symptoms of the patient and may be fatal. In this poster an attempt has been made to discuss a case report of a patient with such a lesion and was treated for the same with right lateral thoracotomy with mediastinal mass excision with good outcome of the patient.
