Abstract

Objective: To describe a rare case of spontaneous conception in a patient with a preexisting metastatic ovarian cancer.Design: Case report. Setting: University hospital. Patient(s): A 39-year-old Asian woman who conceived while undergoing an evaluation for primary infertility and newly detected bilateral adnexal masses. Intervention(s): Staging laparotomy and total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingooophorectomy. Main Outcome Measure(s): Anatomic pathology diagnosis. Result(s): Blighted ovum and stage IIIC endometrioid adenocarcinoma of ovary. Conclusion(s): Metastatic ovarian cancer does not prevent either spontaneous ovulation or spontaneous conception.
