Abstract


Teratoma of mediastinum is rare germ cell tumor. Anterior mediastinum is the most common extragonadal site. Benign mediastinal teratoma accounts for 60% of all mediastinal germ cell tumors. Benign mature teratoma has excellent prognosis after surgical excision. We present a case of 20-year-old woman diagnosed as benign mature teratoma which compressed main pulmonary trunk. The patient underwent surgical excision.
