Uterine tumors resembling ovarian sex cord tumors: treatment, recurrence, pregnancy and brief review


Schraag, Sabrina M; Caduff, Rosmarie; Dedes, Konstantin J; Fink, Daniel; Schmidt, Ana-Maria (2017). Uterine tumors resembling ovarian sex cord tumors: treatment, recurrence, pregnancy and brief review. Gynecologic Oncology Reports, 19:53-56.

Abstract

Background: Uterine Tumors Resembling Ovarian Sex Cord Tumors (UTROSCT) are rare tumors of low malignancy. In the past, these tumors were mainly treated by hysterectomy. More recently, some authors have proposed conservative surgical management for women wishing to preserve fertility. This article is the first to report on organ-preserving treatment in the case of recurrence or disease persistence.
Cases: We report on three patients with UTROSCT, two of them young, not having completed family planning. One even gave birth to a healthy child after fertility-preserving treatment of a persistent UTROSCT. To our knowledge, this is the first pregnancy reported after surgical treatment of a persistent UTROSCT so far.
Conclusion: A fertility-sparing approach should always be considered in young women with UTROSCT who wish to preserve their fertility, also in cases of recurrence or disease persistence.
