Well-differentiated adenocarcinoma arising from mature cystic teratoma of the mediastinum (teratoma with malignant transformation). Report of a surgical case



Well-differentiated adenocarcinoma arising from mature cystic teratoma of the mediastinum (teratoma with malignant transformation). Report of a surgical case



American Journal of Clinical Pathology 101(4): 531-534



A surgical case of teratoma with malignant transformation (TMT) of the mediastinum in a 66-year-old man is reported. The unilocular, cystic, mediastinal mass, which had been seen in a chest radiograph 7 years earlier, was extirpated. The mass was histologically revealed to be a mature cystic teratoma containing skin and respiratory epithelial tissues, with some areas of well-differentiated adenocarcinoma.
