The simultaneous presence of cancer and pregnancy is rare but occurs, creating extreme scenarios in clinical practice. Hodgkin's disease (HD), affects primarily young adults and therefore obstetricians may confront young women with this type of lymphoma during pregnancy. We report a case of a 27-year-old woman with HD who presented during the 28th week of gestation. After counseling the couple decided to continue with the pregnancy. The patient received conservative treatment with regression of the symptoms and rapid improvement of her general condition. At 36 weeks of gestation a healthy infant was born and the patient underwent chemotherapy after delivery with complete resolution of the disease.
