Abstract


We report a case of primary endodermal sinus tumor of the omentum which may be the fourth reported case in the English literature. A 19-year-old boy presented with ascites. Analysis of ascites revealed high levels of AFP and CA 125. Laparoscopic biopsy showed endodermal sinus tumour. He was treated with four courses of the BEP regimen (bleomycin, etoposide, cisplatin). The patient was died 2 months after the first appearance of the ascites. Endodermal sinus tumor (EST) is a rare neoplasm which usually arises in the testis or ovary. But extragonadal EST especially located in the abdomen is very rare condition. Clinicians should remain vigilant particularly, when there is a low gradient ascites and are high levels of tumor markers in ascites in young patients.
