Turk J Obstet Gynecol 2008;5(1):44-47

The most common malignancies reported to occur in association with pregnancy include those of the breast, of the uterine cervix, malignant melanoma, lymphoma and leukemia. In contrast, primary bone and soft tissue tumors occur rarely in pregnancy. Because of the rarety of this conditions during pregnancy and limited experience, the optimal management is not clearly defined. However, the use of therapeutic modalities such as extensive surgical resection, chemotherapy and radiation therapy for maternal health has to be weighed against the potential risk to the baby. We report a case of Ewing’s sarcoma diagnosed in a 22-year-old childbearing women.
