Mature teratomas are common neoplasms in the anterior mediastinum. However, a primary carcinoid tumor occurring in a mature teratoma is extremely rare. To our knowledge, there are only 2 published articles in the literature to date reporting a mature cystic teratoma of the mediastinum containing a carcinoid. We herein report another case of primary carcinoid tumor arising from a mature cystic teratoma in the anterior mediastinum.
