Three cases of ovarian neoplasms in children between the ages of 6 and 8 years have been presented, the first a highly malignant epithelial tumour of embryonal type presenting with sexual precocity, the second a dysgerminoma, far less malignant, and the third, a benign dermoid cyst presenting as an acute abdominal emergency. Some of the relevant literature has been reviewed.
