Summary: Surgery with or without radiotherapy produces a high cure rate in localized pure dysgerminoma of the ovary. Recurrence rates are low, and usually occur within 2 years. We report the case of a 58‐year‐old para 1 who developed recurrent pure dysgerminoma 33 years after initial surgery. The need for long‐term follow‐up of these patients is emphasized.
