Abstract

Anterior mediastinal teratomas are congenital tumors containing derivatives of all three germ layers. They usually grow slowly and are often detected incidentally by imaging studies. We describe the case of a 38-year-old man with an anterior mediastinal teratoma extending to the anterior neck, which resulted in a cystic neck mass.
