Primary intracranial germ cell tumors (GCTs) are 3.1% of all primary brain tumors [1]; they affect pediatric population (mean age of 16.1 years) with a male:female ratio of 4:1 and are located in midline structures such as suprasellar and/or pineal region [2]; tumors contemporary located at suprasellar and pineal regions called synchronous GCT are 13% of all GCTs; these lesions are germinoma (60-80% of patients) with high sensitivity to radiotherapy [3], teratoma (18%), endodermal sinus tumors (7%), embryonal carcinomas (5%), and choriocarcinomas (5%).
