Eight patients presenting with endodermal sinus tumour of the ovary have been treated with combination chemotherapy using cisplatin, bleomycin and vinblastine (PVB). Complete remission occurred in 7 out of 8 cases, all of whom are alive and well 3 to 33 months later. These preliminary results are compared with our own past experience and recent reports in the literature. It is concluded that the PVB regimen is probably as effective in female germ cell tumours as it is in testicular teratoma.
