Abstract

We report a third case of an unusual maligant neoplasm of the paranasal sinuses in a 60-year-old woman. Similar cases have been previously reported and called malignant teratoma. In consultation with Ackerman (written communication, February 1976) we propose the term "teratocarcinoma" and believe this is to be a more descriptive term and less likely to be confused with the generic term "teratoma," which is a benign tumor.
