Abstract
Endodermal sinus tumors(EST) have also been referred to as "yolk sac tumors" because they are derived from the primitive yolk sac. These lesions are the third most frequent malignant germ-cell tumors of the ovary. Recent advances in treating the endodermal sinus tumor of the ovary with the combination chemotherapy result in improvement of the prognosis. We had experienced a case of the endodermal sinus tumor of 15 year old woman. We report this case with a brief review of literatures.
Key Words: EST, BEP
