Abstract

A female Macaca mulatta was observed for 31 months after the initial surgical removal of an ovarian tumor. Solitary metastatic lesions were surgically removed 26 and 28 months after excision of the primary tumor. The animal was killed after 31 months because of additional metastatic lesions. Histological evaluation by light microscopy was not conclusive in determining the origin of neoplasm. Transmission electron microscopy, lymphocyte marker studies, and hormone assays were utilized to confirm the diagnosis of dysgerminoma.
