Abstract

Endodermal sinus tumor (EST) is the third most frequent malignant germ cell tumour of the ovary. Occurrence of this tumor during pregnancy is rare. We report a case of endodermal sinus tumour during pregnancy which was managed laparoscopically. Laparoscopic management of this case adds to the treatment modalities of Endodermal sinus tumour which usually presents in the younger group of patients.

If adequate follow up is done the outcome is no different from those cases which are managed by laparotomies.
