We present an extreme case of gigantomastia in pregnancy during the second gemelar pregnancy of a 30-year-old woman. Her first pregnancy was 8 years ago, was also gemelar and she delivered with caesarean section. From the beginning of her current pregnancy, the patient noted steady growth of both of her breasts that reached enormous dimensions at the end of the pregnancy. This kind of breast changes did not occur during her first pregnancy. The patient also suffered from myasthenia gravis that was in remission during this pregnancy, without any therapy. The patient was in the 38 weeks of gestation, and a delivery with caesarean section was performed in line with the reduction of her breasts. The main reasons that led me to perform these two interventions as one act were the fact that puerperal mastitis could develop on these enormous breasts, further the small regression of these huge breasts during the bromocriptine treatment, as well as the intention to avoid other operative traumas, considering possibility of exacerbation of myasthenia gravis. I had already performed bilateral reduction mammaplasty with free areola-nipple graft, when a tissue with total weight of 20 kg (2 × 10 kg) was removed. The patient had an excellent post-operation recovery course.
