La survenue d’une rechute ovarienne isolée d’une leucémie aiguë lymphoblastique (LAL), en rémission complète après une chimiothérapie est une situation rarement décrite. Nous rapportons le cas d’une jeune fille de 12 ans, traitée pour une LAL qui a présenté 4 ans après la fin du traitement initial une rechute ovarienne et tubaire gauche, isolée, tardive sans rechute hématologique ni médullaire, révélée par une masse pelvienne isolée. Le diagnostic a été établi par une biopsie guidée par tomodensitométrie, et une 2e rémission complète a été obtenue après chimiothérapie et chirurgie complémentaire.

The occurrence of an isolated ovarian or pelvic relapse of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in complete remission after chemotherapy has rarely been described. We report the case of a 12-year-old girl, treated for ALL, who developed an isolated left ovarian and fallopian tube localization without medullary or blood relapse 4 years after the end of the initial treatment. She presented with an isolated pelvic mass. The diagnosis was established by a CT-guided biopsy. The treatment consisted of a second course of chemotherapy and complementary surgery; a second complete remission was obtained.
