CUNEO, Lucrecia et al. Mediastinal non seminomatous germ cell tumor with pulmonary compromise. Rev. argent. radiol. [online]. 2008, vol.72, n.1, pp.87-92. ISSN 1852-9992.

The prevalence of extragonadal germ cell tumors is only 1- 2.5% of all germ cell tumors. The mediastinum is the second most common site affected. We present the case of a 29 years old male pacient, with a persistent cough dating back to five months. We performed chest X-R, thorax CT and MRI and testicular US. The findings of this images besides the presence of elevated levels of alpha-fetoprotein and beta-human gonadotropin confirm the diagnosis of extragonadal germ cell tumor.

Keywords : Extragonadal germ cell tumor; Mediastinum; Chest CT; Chest MRI; Cisplatinum.
