INTRODUCTION: Germ cell tumors are often composed of several different cell types. Rarely, these tumors can include sarcomatous components, such as rhabdomyosarcoma or angiosarcoma, which may be realized after failure of chemotherapy to reduce tumor size. Currently, given the poor response rate of systemic therapy for angiosarcoma, surgical resection is considered the most effective therapy. Monitoring response to therapy with tumor markers and imaging is important, as it may identify chemo-refractory malignancies.
