What treatments are available for teratoma with malignant transformation?

Because teratoma with malignant transformation (TMT) is quite rare, there are no established treatment guidelines.  In general, treatment often includes surgery to remove as much of the TMT as possible.  Chemotherapy that is specifically designed to target the malignant part of the TMT may also be used.[1][2]
