NCI Definition: A neoplasm that arises from the ovary and originates from germ cells. Representative examples include teratoma, embryonal carcinoma, yolk sac tumor, and dysgerminoma. [1]

Ovarian germ cell tumors most frequently harbor alterations in TP53, KRAS, KMT2D, PIK3CD, and PIK3CA [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Ovarian Germ Cell Tumor

TP53 Mutation, TP53 c.217-c.1178 Missense, TP53 Missense, TP53 Exon 5 Mutation, and KMT2D Mutation are the most common alterations in ovarian germ cell tumor [2].
