We report here a rare case of bilateral pure gonadoblastoma which accounts for only 0.2% of all ovarian tumours seen at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia from 1980 to 1987. This tumour occurred in an 18 year old Chinese "female" who presented with primary amenorrhoea. Examination showed a phenotypic female with poorly developed external gentalia. Exploratory laparotomy revealed a hypoplastic uterus, rudimentary fallopian tubes and streak gonads. Histological examination of the gonads showed a mixed tumour comprising large germ cells and smaller sex cord derivatives arranged in characteristic nests or islands containing hyaline material.
