Lung India. 2015 Sep-Oct;32(5):483-5. doi: 10.4103/0970-2113.164167.


Teratoma is a rare presentation in adult, specifically in cervico-mediastinal region. We reported two adult patients with diagnosis of cervico-mediastinal teratoma and operated them. In adult patients who present with cervico-mediastinal mass, benign teratoma could be one of a differential diagnosis although it is a rare presentation.
