Abstract

A case of a 25-year-old primigravid woman at 31 weeks' gestation with the diagnosis of preeclampsia, malignant pelvic mass, fetal growth restriction and postpartum pulmonary thromboembolism is reported. Fertility preserving surgery for ovarian carcinoma fol­lowing cesarean delivery was carried out. Final histopathology revealed Stage IC dysgerminoma. After eight months of initial surgery she became pregnant spontaneously. After two years of initial surgery she is still alive without any evidence of disease.
