Growing Teratoma Syndrome is a rare clinical entity in which patients with metastatic non-seminomatous germ cell tumors who were treated with systemic chemotherapy later develop progressively enlarging, benign teratomas in various sites throughout the body. We discuss a case in which a 26 year-old man with a history of systemically treated testicular cancer and multiple new posterior mediastinal teratomas underwent a fully transthoracic robotic resection of these aforementioned lesions.
