The article focuses on the study of the 17-year-old girl with a 2-month history of right-sided chest pain, cough, expectoration, and fever. The patient received generalized treatment for cough and fever at another clinic and was hospitalized with a preliminary diagnosis of lung abscess. The patient's diagnosis of the lesion was achieved by open thoracotomy and the bulk of the tumor was resected by right upper lobectomy. The study illustrates all the typical features of a teratoma.
