Abstract

Abstract Cervical cancer complicated by pregnancy is a rare event. While counseling patients with cervical cancer during pregnancy, many factors must be considered, including the patient's desire to continue the pregnancy, the stage of the disease, and the gestational age at diagnosis. Pregnant women with microinvasive cervical cancer should be fully informed of all possible treatment options and consequences. Herein, we report the case of a woman who was diagnosed with microinvasive cervical cancer during pregnancy at 10 weeks of gestation. After a combination treatment of cervical conization, cervical cerclage, and cesarean section, she delivered a healthy baby and at 7 months postpartum there was no indication of malignancy.
