Answer

Thyroglobulin is the preferred tumor marker followed in patients with malignant struma ovarii and should be followed sequentially after surgery and ablation. Increases in serum thyroglobulin should be followed up with total body scanning to detect recurrence, which is treated with subsequent radioablation. [16]
