Abstract

Rectal carcinoma is rare during pregnancy. Prognosis is usually unfavorable due to late diagnosis, and management, especially regarding the mode of delivery, is controversial. Current treatment of rectal carcinoma includes neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy, which may influence obstetrical management. We present a case report and discuss obstetrical management in view of updated knowledge and therapeutic approaches.
