Primitive neuroectodermal tumors (PNET) belong to a group of highly malignant tumors comprised of small round cells of neuroectodermal origin. These tumors can be either of peripheral-type (Ewing family tumors/PNET) or central-type. A number of case reports have described PNET involving the gynecologic organs and the prognosis is generally poor. The authors describe the case of a 53-year-old woman with a rapidly progressing central-type PNET of the ovary.
