Testicular neoplasms are common cause of morbidity in both pediatric age group as well as adult. In testicular teratomas various types of tissues are present which represent the different germ layers (endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm).Typically they appear at any age, but are usually much more common in pediatric patients, where they comprise up to 30% of all tu¬mors. In most of the reports, mature testicular teratomas likely to be diagnosed in a younger age group. Here, we report a mature testicular teratoma of the testis in a 55-year-old man which was quite rare especially in old age.
