Treating pregnant patients with a verified malignant disease represents a great clinical problem. Pregnancy-associated invasive cervical cancer is usually diagnosed at an early stage (approximately 70%). A 27-year-old patient was given the diagnosis of a pathohistologically verified cervical carcinoma, International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage IB1, in the 17th gestational week (GW). A radical abdominal trachelectomy was performed in the 19th GW. The patient was undergoing regular examinations at our institute of oncology while the Clinic of Gynecology and Obstetrics in Novi Sad, Serbia, monitored the pregnancy. In 36th GW, the patient had a cesarean section, with no visible traces of relapse, with good postoperative recovery and normal results in the newborn. The patient was discharged on the fifth postoperative day and advised to have her condition monitored at our institute of oncology. One year after radical trachelectomy, the patient is in the 15th GW of a new pregnancy with a normal Papanicolaou smear result.
