A young 19-year-old patient consults for a productive cough with purulent sputum with a notion of trichoptysis. The standard chest x-ray revealed an excavated excavation which sat at the level of the middle part of the left lung. The thoracic CT scan revealed a mediastinopulmonary cystic lesion containing area bubbles with numerous calcifications. The surgical gesture consisted of a complete resection of the lesion extended to the lingual. Anatomopathological examination of the surgical specimen confirmed the diagnosis of an intra-thymic teratoma containing cartilaginous, pancreatic, and osseous and sebaceous glands.
