Germ cell tumors arise in the ovaries and testis and rarely in other tissues. Mixed germ cell tumors are rare. We report two cases of mixed germ cell tumors, one consisting of seminoma and immature teratoma in the testis of a 30-year-old male and second consisting of a yolk sac tumor and immature teratoma in the ovary of a 17-year-old female. Many combinations of mixed germ cell tumors have been reported but very few cases of the above-mentioned combinations have been reported in literature.
