The present case report discusses about Ovarian dysgerminoma. Malignant GCT’s are being classified into subgroups, the most common of it is dysgerminoma. Most common mode of spread is through lymphatic system into paraaortic lymphnode. A 22-year-old woman appeared with amenorrhea and a lump in her abdomen for six months. Her physical examination revealed a large abdominal mass the size of 36 weeks. Subsequent computed tomography revealed 22×23×32.4 cm mixed density lesion in pelvi-abdominal region and multiple paraaortic and mesenteric lymph node with gross pleural effusion. The procedure included a total abdominal hysterectomy, right salpingo-ophorectomy, excision of the tumour mass, partial omentectomy, and lymphadenectomy. Dysgerminoma was suspected based on histopathology data. Postsurgical clinical surveillance can be planned for patient at low risk to prevent secondary malignancies, steriliry and gonadal dysfunction associated with pelvic radiotherapy but careful followup is required to ensure early detection of recurrence.
