Abstract  
For women of reproductive age diagnosed with gynaecologic cancers, techniques that aim to preserve the fertility are a growing area of research. Fertility-sparing surgical techniques should be an option for these patients, since removing the abnormal ovarian tissue may restore conceiving potential. The authors present the case of a 26-year-old woman diagnosed incidentally with a borderline ovarian tumor during an infertility check-up, who obtained a spontaneous pregnancy two months after laparoscopic unilateral adnexaectomy, followed by IVF and embryo-banking.
Key words:  Infertility      Borderline ovarian tumor      Fertility-sparing surgery      Pregnancy      Low malignant potential      IVF
