ZAVALA ELIZONDO, A.; MARTINEZ MONTELONGO, R.  and  GONZALEZ, J.E.. Extragonadal germ cell tumor in mediastinum: case report. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2008, vol.32, n.3, pp.357-359. ISSN 0210-4806.

The Germ Cell tumors of extragonadal origin are infrequent cases being described in literature less than 1000 cases. The frequent origin sites are mediastinum, retroperitoneum, sacrococcygeal region, and the pineal gland. There was a primary case of germinoma in mediastinum in a 27 years patient. In the image studies a mediastinal mass was demonstrated, a biopsy was taken arriving at the diagnosis. Normal tumor markers, testicular ultrasonography reported the presence of bilateral microlitiasis. It was treating with polychemotherapy and later residual mass was dried. The evolution was satisfactory with complete answer.

Keywords : Germinoma; Mediastinum.
