Abstract

Primary mediastinal germ cell tumors accounts for about 3-15% of the mediastinal malignancies. Nonseminomatous tumors make a small percentage of germ cell tumors. Treatment of mediastinal choriocarcinoma includes initial systemic chemotherapy, followed by complete resection of all residual tumors. However, patients with non-seminomatous tumors have very poor prognosis.
