Abstract

The majority of children with cancer can now expect to be cured. Recent advances in assisted reproduction have focused attention on the long-term fertility outcome for these survivors. This article summarizes the current state of our knowledge about who is at risk of subfertility after childhood cancer and discusses possibilities of fertility preservation that are currently being researched.
