Abstract: The clinical symptoms of intracranial immature teratoma vary according to its specific location in the brain, but commonly include symptoms of brain tissue oppression.In addition, some tumors can secrete hormones and lead to corresponding symptoms.
Most tumors lack specific imaging findings, and the diagnoses mainly depend on histologic examination. An increase of some substances including AFP, b-HCG, and PLAP in serum and cerebrospinal fluid is crucial in the diagnosis of CNS germ-cell tumors including immature teratoma
