An update on the management of invasive cervical cancer (from stage IB) diagnosed during pregnancy with reference to the recent French guidelines. We retrospectively analyzed patients for whom invasive cervical cancer was diagnosed during pregnancy and managed jointly by Jeanne-de-Flandres and Roubaix maternity and by Oscar-Lambret cancer center between 2002 and 2009. Five patients were included: four stage IB1, and one stage IB2. Five pregnancies resulted in the birth of six alive children. Three patients received neoadjuvant chemotherapy during pregnancy. One patient had a laparoscopic pelvic lymphadenectomy in first trimester. Two laparoscopic extraperitoneal paraortic lymphadenectomy have been made. The mean time of survey is 47.5 months (12-94 months). One patient died of her cancer. The diagnosis of cervical cancer during pregnancy involves the same therapeutic guidelines in the absence of pregnancy. The laparoscopic pelvic lymphadenectomy (up to 20 to 24 weeks of gestation) is crucial in the therapeutic treatment for tumors less than 4cm. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is used during pregnancy for patients refusing medical termination of pregnancy.
