Testicular germ cell tumors (GCT) are a diverse group of neoplasms, broadly divided into seminomatous and non seminomatous types, with varying histomorphology. Mixed germ cell tumors express more than one germ cell component. Somatic type malignancy occurring in testicular GCT is rare. Most often these components present as metastasis, particularly following chemotherapy, rather than primarily involving the testis. We describe a rare case of a young adult with no significant past history, who presented with testicular mass which on histology revealed a non-seminomatous mixed germ cell tumor with additional somatic type malignancy component of a rhabdomyosarcoma.
