Abstract

Dysgerminoma is a malignant germ cell tumour (GCT) accounting for less than 1% of ovarian neoplasm. It is analogous to seminoma in males. It is a tumour of young age, affecting women of reproductive age group. In most of the cases, due to its clinical features of it is often, misdiagnosed as abdominal tuberculosis. It is one of the rare tumours, which have excellent response to chemotherapy and radiotherapy. It is tumour in whom, surgery followed by radiotherapy and chemotherapy gives excellent prognosis even in advanced stage. This is a rare case report of 16-year-old girl with primary amenorrhoea, abdominal mass and pleural effusion, when undergone staging laparotomy – had ovarian tumour with torsion which histopathologically came out to be, dysgerminoma.
