Germ Cell Tumors of the Ovary

Abstract

Ovarian germ cell tumors (OGCT) are rare malignancies that occur in young women. Histologically they are classified as dysgerminoma, yolk sac tumor, embryonal carcinoma, polyembryoma, nongestational choriocarcinoma, and teratomas and mixed cell tumors. Because of the development of cisplatin-based chemotherapy, virtually all patients with early stage, completely resected OGCTs will survive after careful surgical staging and three courses of adjuvant BEP. Furthermore, 70-80% of patients with incompletely resected or advanced tumors will be long-term survivors. Acute toxicity of treatment is relatively modest. Late consequences of chemotherapy are limited. Efforts should concentrate on fertility preservation for patients who desire subsequent pregnancies.
