Laparoscopic BSO in Turner Syndrome Patient

Dear friends,

We just performed a laparoscopic BSO in a 27 year old patient with a Turner-Syndrom. Histological diagnosis was Gonadoblastoma and dysgerminona (both FIGO IA) of the left ovary. Any suggestions regarding further treatment?

Thanks in advance,
Philipp Harter

Response # 1:  
If they are both real figo Ia after complete surgical exploration no future treatment after bilateral salpingectomy

Dear Philipp,

Prognosis for gonadoblastoma is very good. In the case of no further lesions a wait and see policy is acceptable. Chemotherapy (BEP) should be given in recurrent situation only.

Best regards,

No personal experience in this double tumor situation.

I would probably take a conservative /surveillance approach.

I might do a PET CT now, Nicoletta Colombo advises this and if negative and markers all normal just watch.

No further treatment, just observation.
