Extragonadal germ cell tumors (GCTs) are neoplasms that develop from germ cells and have a similar histopathological structure with the gonadal forms of GCTs, but are located outside the gonads. GCTs are the most common malignant neoplasms in men aged 15–35. From 1 to 5 % of malignant GCTs are of the extragonadal origin.The work describes a clinical case of extragonadal mediastinal germ cell tumor, which was diagnosed at the stage of the histological examination of the surgical material.
