303 views

ABSTRACT

Although the exact incidence of cervical cancer cases in pregnant women is not known, undoubtedly is the most common gynecological malignancy diagnosed during pregnancy. Association between the two entities does not seem to influence the oncological outcomes. However, the management of these cases remains a real challenge for the obstetrician and for the onco-gynecologist, fighting for two lives being necessary. Moreover, due to the rarity of cases, there are no standard guidelines, the therapeutic strategy being influenced only by small case series and observational studies. This is a literature review of the current therapeutic options available for the management of such cases.

Keywords: cervical cancer, pregnancy, management.
