Abstract

A 5-month-old Hispanic female, diagnosed as having endodermal sinus tumor of the vagina, was treated with combination chemotherapy in an attempt to preserve pelvic function. An incisional biopsy was performed before starting chemotherapy. After completion of chemotherapy, no residual disease was found at exploratory laparotomy. The patient received no further therapy and is disease-free 45 months later. This case represents successful treatment of a vaginal endodermal sinus tumor without any operative excision.
