A 30-year-old female underwent left salpingo-oophorectomy followed by chemotherapy for Stage IC adenocarcinoma of the ovary. Three years later she had ovarian hyperstimulation and in vitro fertilization (OH-IVF) resulting in a singleton pregnancy. During cesarean section peritoneal washings and biopsies were negative for recurrence. Seven years after the initial diagnosis, the patient is still free of any disease. In conclusion, OH-IVF may be considered in young patients with early ovarian cancer treated with conservative surgery and chemotherapy.
