Biopsy of the mediastinal mass suggested a GCT with immature teratomatous
Final diagnosis depending on this histopathology was made as malignant melanoma arising as a secondary malignancy in teratomatous
component of PMGCT.
Computed tomography showed a large lobulated solid cystic 5x9 cm mass in right adnexa which was well defined, bosselated and had hyper vascular enhancement with fatty component and calcific foci suggestive of a teratomatous
Cystic lesions in mediastinum may be clinically diagnosed as mediastinal abscess, benign teratomatous
cyst, and true mediastinal cyst.
The biopsy report revealed solid and cystic tissue showing mature intestinal epithelium and pancreatic acinar tissue without any evidence of immature teratomatous
Analysis of ovarian teratomas for isochromosome 12p: evidence supporting a dual histogenetic pathway for teratomatous
There was no sarcomatous component closely associated with teratomatous
In the largest reported series of 26 cases of ovarian leiomyosarcoma, a teratomatous
component was present in only two cases .
Histo-pathological examination revealed poorly differentiated p63 positive SCC in a teratomatous
No immature or teratomatous
component could be identified and thus diagnosed as choristoma of tongue (Fig.
Both need to be distinguished from the usual teratoma of the adult testis because they are uniformly benign, whereas the usual postpubertal teratoma may have associated metastases of either teratomatous
or nonteratomatous germ cell tumors.
Although this proposition is felt by many to be less likely, as the typical age of presentation for these tumours is beyond that normally seen for teratomas, these tumours lack other potential teratomatous
components and do not display intratubular germ cell neoplasia.[sup.8,9,20]
