Primary malignancies of the seminal vesicles are rare. Presentation of extragonadal germ cell tumor in the seminal vesicle is even rarer. We report a case of a 26-year-old male who presented with hematuria and lower urinary tract symptoms, which on imaging turned out to be a right seminal vesicle mass. The diagnosis of mixed germ cell tumor with yolk sac tumor and teratoma was made on the initial evaluation by transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsy which showed the characteristic histomorphology and immunohistochemistry profile. The patient underwent chemotherapy followed by radical pelvic exenteration. The patient is doing well with no evidence of distant metastasis in positron emission tomography/computed tomography of 1-year posttreatment.
