Ovarian tissue transplantation in leukemia

Ovarian tissue transplantation in leukemia
In this issue of Fertility and Sterility, Shapira et al. (1) describe the first successful delivery in a leukemia survivor following transplantation of cryopreserved ovarian tissue evaluated for leukemia cells contamination. The authors should be congratulated for the successful outcome and meticulous evaluation in search of possible minimal residual disease in the ovarian grafted tissue. Ovarian tissue cryopreservation (OTC) and subsequent autotransplantation is an emerging, rapidly developing, procedure for preserving fertility in young women exposed to aggressive gonadotoxic treatment facing a high risk of premature ovarian failure (POF).
