Fertility Preservation in Endocrine Disorders during Transition for Girls

Abstract : Recent advances in fertility preservation (FP) techniques have led to a wide spread of indications. FP should now be discussed not only for young girls having to receive gonadotoxic treatments for cancer, but also for those with genetic or endocrine disorders, as well as benign ovarian diseases at risk of premature ovarian insufficiency. For premenarchal girls, ovarian tissue cryopreservation is still the only available technique. Oocyte cryopreservation after ovarian stimulation could be offered to postmenarchal girls. Whenever possible, the parents and the young patient should be informed of the benefits to be expected, as well as of the risks and limits of FP for children.
