Abstract
Dysgerminoma is accounting for only 1-3% of all ovarian cancers and about 30-40% of all ovarian germ cell malignant tumors. Elevated serum or urine levels of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) occurs in about 2% of non-pregnant patients with dysgerminoma, and usually result in hormonal manifestations, mimicking an ectopic pregnancy or hydatidiform mole. We experienced one case of dysgerminoma with syncytiotrophoblastic giant cell and report this case with a brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Dysgerminoma, Human chorionic gonadotropin, Syncytiotrophoblastic giant cell
