Mixed germ cell tumors (GCTs) are aggressive tumors owing to poor response to therapy, frequent recurrence and metastasis. We present here a case of 29-year-old male with recurrent metastatic mixed GCT in the left parietal lobe, with right testicular primary. Interestingly, the recurrent tumor exhibited a seminomatous component, in addition to yolk sac tumor and embryonal carcinoma. The patient was treated with surgery, cranial radiotherapy and cisplatin-based chemotherapy. The metastatic intracranial tumor recurred twice and the patient died 18 months after the first appearance of central nervous system metastasis.
