Author: C. Iavazzo, G. Vorgias, P. E. Iavazzo, I. D. Gkegkes

Abstract: Dysgerminoma is the most common ovarian germ cell type ovarian tumour. Primarily, it presents in young women at reproductive age and thus, the preservation of fertility is considered to be fundamental when it is possible for these patients. In comparison to the past the restriction of the extent of the surgical procedure as well as the introduction of innovative chemotherapeutic regimens improved significantly both, the prognosis and the clinical outcomes of this rare neoplasia. As dysgerminomas are extremely radio- and chemosensitive, fertility sparing approach and less aggressive operations should be favoured. We present a narrative review of the multispecialty fertility sparing surgical and medical approach for women with dysgerminoma (Ref. 21).

Keywords: dysgerminoma, ovarian germ cell tumor, fertility sparing surgery, premenopausal, treatment.
