Combined chemotherapy using carboplatin and paclitaxel has been established as a standard regimen for epithelial ovarian carcinoma. We present the case of a 36-year-old woman with ovarian mucinous cystadenocarcinoma who underwent exploratory laparotomy during pregnancy, revealing Stage 1c at gestational week 15. Afterwards, five courses of paclitaxel and carboplatin chemotherapy were administered biweekly from gestational week 24. Cesarean section was performed at gestational week 36. No recurrent or metastatic lesions were found and outcomes for both mother and neonate have been satisfactory for 40 months since diagnosis of ovarian carcinoma.
