Abstract

Primary endodermal sinus tumor (yolk sac tumor) of the mediastinum is rare. Most patients are young and male, and the great majority of tumors are found in the anterior mediastinum, and spontaneous hemothorax is a rare presentation of intrathoracic tumors. We report a case of spontaneous hemothorax associated with a posterior mediastinal endoderml sinus tumor occuring in a female patient. Brief review and related literatures were also presented.
