Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The treatment of ovarian germ cell rumours has changed during the past two decades. The use of conservative surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy instead of radiotherapy is now often but not always employed. We report three cases of young patients treated for ovarian germ cell tumours, who were subsequently able to complete successful pregnancies. We think that in view of the possibility of sparing the young patients' childbearing potential with a better quality of life, this therapeutic approach should be utilized whenever applicable.
