OBJECTIVE: To present a case report of fatal colon cancer in a young, previously healthy woman 4 years after repeated ovarian stimulation for egg donation, review previous publications on the risks of ovarian stimulation, and make recommendations for further egg donor follow-up, research, and actions by professional associations and regulatory agencies. DESIGN: Case report and review of the literature. SETTING: Case report and review of the literature. PATIENT(S): One patient and published cases. INTERVENTION(S): None. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): None. RESULT(S): There has been no systematic study of the long-term risk of cancer or other adverse outcomes in healthy egg donors. CONCLUSION(S): At present, potential egg donors cannot give truly informed consent because insufficient information exists about their long-term risks.
