Cervical cancer associated with pregnancy is rare (0.05%), although it is the most frequently diagnosed malignancy in pregnant women. We present the case of a 28-year-old woman at 25 weeks of gestation diagnosed with Stage 1B cervical cancer. Treatment was delayed until fetal maturity, and an elective cesarean section was performed at 33 weeks’ gestation, followed by a total hysterectomy preserving the ovaries, and a pelvic lymphadenectomy. A review of the literature on the treatment of cervical cancer during pregnancy relevant to the case described is also presented.
