The authors report the case of a 21-year-old woman that presented a Pseudo Meigs' syndrome, secondary to a pure endodermal sinus tumour (yolk sac tumour).
Fine needle aspiration biopsy was compatible with high-grade carcinoma and the alpha fetoprotein (aFP) was at 13, 185 U/ml. Cytoreductive surgery was performed, followed by bleomycin, etoposide, and cisplatin (BEP) chemotherapy.
