Testicular germ cell tumours are the most common malignant tumours seen in adult males in the 20-40 years age group. The cure rate of these tumours is quite high even with the presence of metastasis. But many patients present quite late in the course of the disease, often with complications. We present the case of a young male who presented with mixed germ cell tumour consisting of the unusual combination of seminoma, yolk sac tumour and mature teratoma. Though mixed germ cell tumour is a common entity, presence of seminomatous and non- seminomatous components is quite unusual.
