We report on a case of a 46-year-old woman with a conus-cauda syndrome due to an endodermal sinus tumor of the right ovary with multiple metastases in the spine and pelvic bone. Before removing the tumor surgically, combination chemotherapy was given to treat the metastases, which threatened to compromise the spinal cord.
