Abstract

Gastric cancer is a very uncommon diagnosis in pregnancy (app. 1/1000 pregnant women), which has a significant impact on the health and life of mother and fetus and can impede the diagnostic and therapeutic process. Oncological vigilance, not underestimating the symptoms, and decisions made ahead of time could increase the chances of survival. Authors are describing the case of pregnancy-associated gastric cancer, diagnosed on the basis of the histopathological result from samples taken during a laparotomy with cesarean section performed due to a suspected gastrointestinal perforation in the 3rd trimester of pregnancy.
