PALACIOS-ACOSTA, José Martín; LEON-HERNANDEZ, Angélica; GUZMAN-MEJIA, José Ignacio  and  SHALKOW-KLINCOVSTEIN, Jaime. Metachronous bilateral teratoma: Ovarian tissue rescue two cases report and literature. Review. Perinatol. Reprod. Hum. [online]. 2012, vol.26, n.1, pp.35-42. ISSN 2524-1710.

The germinal tumors belong to a group of non epithelial neoplasias which can have a gonadal or extragonadal localization. Teratomas are tumors which can have two or more embrionary layers its presentation is unilateral, but in 10% of the cases are bilateral. Ovary rescue is a feasible and useful technique in pediatric patients who present the bilateral form of the disease. In this paper we report two cases of pediatric patients, who developed a methacronic bilateral teratomas, one case of a 12 years old patient and the second one of a 15 years old girl, in both cases we performed ovarian tissue rescue. At the present time they have normal hormonal levels, and in the future they can probably be fertile thanks to the residual ovary tissue.

Keywords : Ovary rescue; methacronic bilateral teratoma; hormonal function.
