Ovarian tumors in young females. A laparoscopic approach
Ovarian tumors are one of the major preoccupations in the everyday practice of gynecology. During the period January 1997 through December 2000, 54 cases of ovarian tumors in young females aged 14-20 years were diagnosed and managed laparosco-pically in our institution. Twenty-two cases of mature cystic teratoma, 12 cases of en1ometriosis, eight cases of serous cystadenoma: five cases of mucinous cystadenoma, three cases of fibroma-thecoma, two cases of serous low-malignant tumors and one case of mucinous low-malignant tumor were found. The management of ovarian tumors during this age by laparoscopic techniques represents an efficient and safe procedure.
