An 18-year-old girl presented to the hospital with pelvic pain for last 5-6 months and a large rapidly growing lower abdominal swelling of the same duration. Ultrasonography revealed an ovarian mass which was subjected to fine needle aspiration cytology. Aspiration cytology showed good cellularity with variable sized tumour cells. Cytoplasm of these tumour cells was granular, while some had punched out vacuoles. Background was tigroid and showed lymphocytes and plasma cells. Diagnosis of dysgerminoma ovary was made on these cytological findings, which were later on confirmed by histopathology.
