The tumors arising in testis are of germ cell origin in most of the cases. Approximately 95% of all testicular neoplasms reported in literature are germ cell tumors (GCTs). Nowadays, there is an increase in the incidence of testicular tumors all over the world because of unknown reasons. Mixed GCTs consisting of various combinations are generally rare. In the literature, very few cases have been reported till today with the combination of seminomatous GCT with choriocarcinoma, teratoma, and embryonal carcinoma. We want to report such a rare case to make clinicians and pathologists aware of this rare entity.
