Germ cell tumours are rare intracranial tumours. The basal ganglionic location of these tumours comprise a rare group. Bilateral involvement of the basal ganglia by germ cell tumours is distinctly rare and have only been reported in Japanese patients. We present the first report of bilateral basal ganglionic germ cell tumour in a non-Japanese patient.
