Abstract: Yolk sac tumor of uterus is a very rare tumor that depelops in the uterus as a result of aberrant migration of primordial germ cells. We present a case of 57 years old woman in climax, which presents at gynecological examination after vaginal bleedings. Biopsy report suggested non-keratinized epidermoid carcinoma microcellular with areas of clear cell carcinoma, poorly differentiated G3, with areas of infarction and acute inflammation associated. The mass was excised and sent to our pathology department for histopathological examination. We reported Yolk sac tumor of uterus with hepatoid pattern T2aN0M0. The section from the uterin cervix and ovary did not show any remarkable pathology.
