Two tumors are present on the slide.
The teratoma takes up most of the slide. It shows widespread necrosis. Tissues from multiple germ layers are visible, which confirms that it’s a teratoma.
The embryonal carcinoma is in the lower right corner. These tumor cells show severe atypia. Necrosis is visible here as well.
Diagnosis: Mixed germ cell tumor with teratoma and embryonal carcinoma
