Abstract

Present therapy for Hodgkin's disease which primarily affects young patients may produce long term remissions in more than 50% of cases. Potential injuries to the reproductive system from radiation or chemotherapy are significant considerations in therapeutic planning. Assessment of the effects of infradiaphragmatic radiation on germ cells may avoid ovarian ablation in women of reproductive age. This report addresses ovarian function and fertility following lateral oophoropexy and repositioning for Hodgkin's disease.
