Abstract

Germ cell tumors originating in the anterior mediastinal compartment represent a rare but biologically interesting group of neoplasms. Knowledge of the specific biologic behaviors and therapeutic strategies for the three histologic types is important. This article discusses the multimodality treatment strategy for primary mediastinal nonseminomatous germ cell tumors.
