Abstract

Elevated levels of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), a fetal serum protein, usuallysignal the development of hepatoma or germ cell tumors, including endodermal sinus tumors. We report the case of a 52-year-old woman with an alpha-fetoprotein-producing malignant mixed Mullerian tumor (MMMT) of the ovary. Serum AFP was 5348 ng/ml at diagnosis. Immunohistochemistry confirmed that the carcinomatous component of this biphasic tumor was the seat of AFP production. After three cycles of combination chemotherapy, the patient achieved a complete remission. Serum AFP was strongly correlated with response to treatment. This is the first report of AFP production by a MMMT of the ovary without a yolk sac component, (C) 2000 Academic Press.
