[Additional file 1]The patient, a 30-year-old man, presented with a 6-month history of worsening dyspnea. The chest x-ray showed widened mediastinum and pulse oxymetry showed desaturation from 93% to 63% when supine. CT scan (shown above) showed massive anterior mediastinal mass causing severe cardiac and pulmonary artery compression. Doppler echocardiography revealed right ventricular outflow tract obstruction with a gradient of 143 mmHg. He underwent surgical excision of the mass, which was found to contain hair and sebum on inspection. Histology confirmed mature teratoma, grade I/III. The patient made a good recovery and was discharged.
