Ovarian dysgerminoma is rare malignant ovarian tumor seen in reproductive age group women. It accounts for 1 -2 % of all primary ovarian neoplasms. Clinically presents with abdominopelvic mass with abdominal pain with or without menstrual disturbances with elevated tumor markers of LDH & Beta HCG. Majority of cases will be diagnosed in Stage 1 and it has an excellent prognosis as it is highly sensitive to chemotherapy. Dysgerminomas are the only germ cell tumor with a significant rate of ovarian involvement bilaterally about 15 to 20 percent. This case report demonstrates that both the clinical and sonographic findings are unique to this rare type of ovarian malignancy.
