Teratomas are the most common mediastinal germ cell tumors. Generally, they are located in the anterior mediastinum. Mature teratomas often present as asymptomatic lesions, are detected incidentally, and account for 60-70% of all mediastinal germ cell tumors. Moreover, germ cell tumors account for anteromediastinal masses in 10-15% of adults and 25% of children. In this case, we aim to present the computed tomography (CT) images of a patient with a pathologically confirmed mediastinal mature teratoma.
