Abstract

BACKGROUND: Fertility preservation techniques are a growing area of research as more women in the reproductive age group develop gynaecologic cancers. We report here a novel technique of fertility preservation used in the treatment of a patient with borderline ovarian tumour.

CASE: A 29-year-old woman with stage I borderline ovarian tumour was referred to our tertiary level hospital. She had a history of infertility and requested fertility preservation be considered in treatment decisions. We performed bilateral laparoscopic partial decortication of the ovaries, and the patient successfully conceived spontaneously following the procedure.

CONCLUSION: Fertility-preserving surgery should be an option for young women with borderline ovarian tumours who wish to retain fertility. Removing abnormal ovarian tissue may restore fertility. The laparoscopic approach is safe and feasible for these patients.
