  Abstract:
  Ovarian cancer takes the second place in the incidence of all genital carcinomas occurring in pregnancy. In spite of a low overall incidence of ovarian cancer in pregnancy and, in most cases, asymptomatic clinical picture, the routine use of ultrasonographic examination in early pregnancy has led to a more frequent detection of adnexal masses in pregnant women. The authors presented a case of a 35-years-old patient with the diagnosis of unilocular cyst in the left ovary detected by ultrasonography at gestational week 8, with the subsequent sinistral adnexectomy administered for the rupture of the cystic tumor. Based on the histopathological examination we established the diagnosis of a serous cystadenocarcinoma stage I. The patient refused any proposed modality of oncologic diagnostics and therapy, and delivered a healthy female newborn of 3630g/49 cm, 10 days after the probable term of delivery. The control MRI, 8 months post partum did not confirm the presence of any pathological changes of either genital organs or any other organ of the small pelvis. The patient is in good general condition, under continual medical observation.
