Abstract

Abstract.The growing teratoma syndrome (GTS) secondary to a testicular nonseminomatous germ cell tumor has been well described since the first case was reported in 1982. In addition, radiological findings of male GTS have also reported in several studies; however, its occurrence secondary to an ovarian germ cell tumor is extremely rare. We experienced a 5-year-old girl who had GTS secondary to immature teratoma of the right ovary. In this article we present radiological findings of female GTS with clinical and pathological correlation.
