Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An ovarian endodermal sinus tumor was found in a patient with a 15-week intrauterine gestation. She received conservative surgery and six courses of combination chemotherapy from 16 weeks' gestation, and delivered a normal term infant at 37 weeks' gestation. Two other courses of combination chemotherapy including cisplatin were added. No residual tumor was found at subsequent exploration, and she is alive 33 months after the original diagnosis without any evidence of recurrence. We believe this is the first reported case of maternal survival past 2 years and the earliest chemotherapy done in the early second trimester of pregnancy without resulting in fetal abnormalities.
