A RARE CASE OF OVARIAN CANCER IN A 19-YEAR-OLD PATIENT
Ovarian cancer is an important health problem because, in generally, is an asymptomatic disease which is diagnosed in advanced stages. Due to these causes it has a high mortality. Managing ovarian cancer in adolescent patients is a real challenge, mainly because the FIGO staging is a surgery one and because it requires an aggressive treatment including radical surgery and chemotherapy. The treatment should be adjusted to each case and it needs a multidisciplinary medical team. We present the case of a 19 years old Caucasian patient who was admitted in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of University Emergency Hospital of Bucharest after she presented to Emergency Room for pelvic-abdominal pain which appeared one month earlier with accentuated progressive character.
