Primary intracranial germ cell tumor is rare. The majority of these tumors are germinoma and teratoma of varying degree of differentiation with much less frequent occurrence of embryonal carcinoma, choriocarcinoma and endodermal sinus tumors. These may occur in various mixture. These are almost exclusively situated in the midline with the pineal or parapineal and hypothalamus. We are presenting a case of embryonal carcinoma mixed with germinoma component, which occurred to a 20 year old man who underwent operation and radiation therapy 6 months previously and the tumor mass was located at the right frontal area extending to the base of frontal lobe. We removed the mass near totally and radiation therapy was performed. The result was successful so far.
