A 20-year-old female presented with right-sided chest pain with nonproductive cough. Contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) thorax showed well-defined nonenhancing soft tissue density lesion in the anterior mediastinum with the presence of multiple small well-defined cystic lesions showing fat density as well as multiple calcifications within it suggestive of a teratoma. The patient underwent surgical excision of the tumor via a trapdoor incision and the final diagnosis of benign mature cystic teratoma was made. The follow-up of two years was uneventful.
