slide 6 of 73

Comments:
Dysgerminomas are large (average size 15 cm), lobulated, solid, soft fleshy tumors with yellow-tan or gray-white appearance. The cut surface shows areas of cystic change, hemorrhage and necrosis. The tumors arising in a background of gonadoblastoma often show calcification.

The image shows dysgerminoma in a 29 y/o female. The tumor is solid, pink-tan and multinodular.
