This article reports the case of a 30-year-old woman who, in 2003, had diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the left vaginal fornix, associated with sclerosis. After six chemoimmunotherapy cycles the patient underwent a laparoscopic procedure for lateral ovarian transposition to spare ovarian function before radiotherapy. Six months after the transposition the evaluation of ovarian function was performed. The hypothalamic-pituitary-ovary axis was normal. Three years after radiation therapy (2006) the patient spontaneously conceived. Her pregnancy proceeded regularly. She had an uneventful vaginal delivery. Lateral ovarian transposition with tubal anatomy preservation, which is an underused technique, can be successfully used to spare ovarian function in women who undergo pelvic radiotherapy and to let them achieve spontaneous pregnancy.
