Epithelial ovarian cancer is the leading cause of mortality among gynecologic malignancies. It occurs more often in women in menopause, which facilitates the implementation of adequate surgical treatment. The aggravating approach arises when diagnosed with young patients who have not given birth. Approximately 10% of all epithelial ovarian carcinoma is diagnosed in women under the age of 40. In those cases, it is necessary to find a balance between adequate treatment and a strong desire for achieving progeny. Criteria guaranteeing safe fertility preservation are not cleary identified. Most studies recommend that fertility sparing surgery can be performed in all young women in whom ovarian cancer is detected as Stage IA grade 1. Here the authors report a preservation of fertility in 19-year-old patient with mucinous ovarian carcinoma.
