Abstract

We report a case that mixed germ cell tumor developed in an 18-year-old girl with 45,X/46,X,+mar mosaic Turner's syndrome. Molecular biological studies showed that the patient's DNA contained a fragment of Y chromosome. The patient underwent an operation and chemotherapy, and until now there is no evidence of recurrence. A presence of Y chromosome component should be evaluated in case a marker chromosome is found in a woman with Turner's syndrome.
