Thymic seminoma is a rare clinical entity. We report a case of an 18-year-old male patient who presented with chest pain, dyspnea, dysphagia of 1-month duration. Contrast-enhanced computer tomogram of chest showed an anterior mediastinal mass. He was subjected to thoracotomy and excision of the mass. Histopathology examination revealed seminoma of thymus. He failed to follow up for a period of 8 months post-surgery as he was asymptomatic. He then presented with a recurrence of the tumor locally, along with metastases to the lung, para-aortic and peri-aortic lymph nodes. He was kept on cisplatin, bleomycin and etoposide.
