This 1995 case was probably the first one with a pregnancy after repositioning of the ovaries in Europe and perhaps even in the world.

Abstract

Pregnancy after transposition and repositioning of the ovaries in a patient with clear-cell adenocarcinoma, Revue française de gynécologie et d’obstétrique, NCBI PubMed PMID: 8677407, 1995 Dec.

A young woman with a history of in utero exposure to distilbestrol was diagnosed with vaginal clear-cell adenocarcinoma. Management consisted of limited excision of the tumor followed by brachytherapy after transposition of the ovaries.

The patient had a successful pregnancy after reimplantation of the ovaries in their normal position and right adnexectomy for Chlamydia infection. The child was delivered by cesarean section.

This is probably the first case with a pregnancy after repositioning of the ovaries in Europe and perhaps even in the world.
