The authors report a case of stage 1 ovarian dysgerminoma (OD) in a young woman aged 23 who subsequently underwent conservative surgery. A review of the literature shows that in 80% of cases this neoplasia is present at stage 1A and 85% of patients are under 30, with a 5-year survival rate of 95%. OD treatment should therefore be personalised and, although it continues to be controversial, most authors agree that in young women in whom the disease is limited to one ovary, without lymph node metastases, treatment can be restricted to monolateral adnexectomy, thus assuring the patient's future fertility.
