Abstract

The frequency of ovarian tumors with pregnancy is rare.The present case reports a malignant mixed ovarian germ cell tumor diagnosed on routine ultrasonography in a primigravida at 11wks of gestation.Conservative surgery followed by combination chemotherapy resulted in a healthy maternal and neonatal outcome.Hence,a multidisciplinary approach,consisting of gynaecologists,oncologists and neonatologists is necessary for a successful outcome in such cases.
