STUDY OBJECTIVE: Mucinous cystadenomas (MCAs) are benign epithelial ovarian tumors that occur rarely in children and adolescents. As children and adolescents typically have their childbearing years ahead of them, conservative therapy is indicated. However, there is concern that ovarian cystectomy may be associated with significant recurrence risk in MCA. Furthermore, GNAS gene mutations are associated with McCune-Albright Syndrome, which is associated with cystic ovaries. We sought to evaluate the outcomes of children and adolescents with MCA treated conservatively...
