Abstract

Gynecologically, NBCCS is variously associated (14%-75% cases) to typically bilateral, multinodular, calcified, ovarian fibromas. We report 2 rare cases of unusually recurrent bilateral ovarian fibromas treated with conservative surgery. Preservation of the normal ovarian tissue is always recommended, even though there is the risk of recurrences, given the benign nature of the lesions and the young age of patients.
