CASTRO-VOLIO, Isabel. Asesoramiento genético a mujeres en edad fértil sobrevivientes de cáncer. Acta méd. costarric [online]. 2007, vol.49, n.4, pp.190-197. ISSN 0001-6002.

Survivors of pediatric, adolescent or pre-menopausal cancer also deserve good quality of life. An important aspect of personal roll being is related to procreation. It is possible that some of the therapeutic interventions which have saved their lives could have jeopardized their fertility, their future deliveries or their offspring health. Hereditary transmission of cancer is another source of concern. Cancer is a new paradigm for genetic counseling. All these issues are approached in this review.

Keywords : cancer; pregnancy; genetic counseling; survivors.
