    Ovarian germ cell tumours (OGCT) are a type of ovarian neoplasm principally affecting young women. They are derived from primitive germ cells of the embryonic gonad, and may undergo germinomatous or embryonic differentiation. They differ in clinical presentation, histology and biology, and include both benign (predominantly) and malignant subtypes. Germ cell tumours (GCT) account for 15-20% of all ovarian neoplasms, and constitute the second largest group of ovarian neoplasms. Less than 5% of ovarian cancers are of germ cell origin.
