Abstract

Malignant ovarian germ cell tumors (MOGCTs) and sex cord-stromal tumors belong to the nonepithelial malignancies of the ovary that are the second largest group of the malignant ovarian neoplasms (of the ovary), with an incidence of 10 % of all ovarian cancers. MOGCTs are rare neoplasms that affect girls and young women and have, with adequate therapy, excellent prognosis at all stages of disease. Young-aged sex cord-stromal tumor patients as the majority of MOGCTs subjects retain their reproductive function. This chapter outlines the most common clinical presentations and summarizes the most frequent ultrasonographic features that are helpful in the appropriate diagnosis of these tumors therefore allowing their correct management.
