We report on the case of a 12-year-old girl, who presented with an ovarian germ cell tumor and cytopenia (anemia and thrombocytopenia) as an associated paraneoplastic syndrome, which gradually regressed after the tumor's removal. This report adds to the previously described paraneoplastic syndromes potentially associated with ovarian germ cell tumor.
