Characteristics, Management and Survival Rate of Ovarian Germ Cell Tumor

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Objective:To determine the prevalence of malignant ovarian germ cell tumour in term of characteristics, management, and 3-year survival rate in Dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital Jakarta from 2011 to 2013.

Methods: This is a cross-sectional study. Secondary data were collected from medical record as well as interviewing patients through phone call or home visit.

Results: We collected data from 24 subjects. As many as 54.2% of subjects were between 20 to 40 year old, and 58.3% was single. Around 83.3% of the subjects came with chief complaint of abdominal enlargement. Histopathology finding confirmed dysgerminoma in 50% subjects, mixed ovarian germ cell tumour in 25%, endodermal sinus tumour or yolk sac tumour in 16.7%, and immature teratoma in 8.3%. Half of the cases were found in stage I. The primary therapy was conservative surgical staging and adjuvant chemotherapy.In 2 subjects with dysgerminoma, neoadjuvant chemotherapy (bleomycin, etoposide, cisplatin, and cyclophosphamide-cisplatin regimen) resulted in a good response. The 3-year survival rate was 83.3% in dysgerminoma, 100% in mixed ovarian germ cell tumour, and 50% in immature teratoma.

Conclusion: In malignant ovarian germ cell tumour, conservative surgical staging followed by a complete course of chemotherapy is the treatment of choice with 3-year survival rate exceeding 70%.
