Ovarian cancer is one of the most lethal gynecological malignancies. It is estimated that 10% of ovarian cancer cases will be diagnosed in women of reproductive age and >80% would be in advanced stage. Conservative treatment can be carried out for Stage IA, B, C1, C2, C3 (International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics) to preserve fertility. Evidence-based data from the descriptive series suggest that in selected cases, the preservation of the uterus and at least one part of the ovary does not lead to a high risk of relapse. Here, we present the case report of a patient who underwent bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy for early stage ovarian cancer and borderline tumor, conceived through in vitro fertilization, with successful pregnancy outcome.
