Dysgerminomas of the ovary rarely metastasize to abdominal viscera and when they do, the involvement is a part of a disseminated disease. A 30-year-old woman developed isolated duodenopancreatic dysgerminoma 14 years after salpingo-oophorectomy. The clinical picture was complicated by the presence of tuberculous lesions in the liver which mimicked metastatic disease. Surgical excision was carried out using a modified pancreatic head resection.
