OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the possibility that women affected by Hodgkin's disease (HD) during their second or third trimester of pregnancy can safely carry their pregnancy to term. METHODS: From 1986 to 1997, 6 women came to our Center during the second trimester of pregnancy and were diagnosed as having HD. Three of these 6 patients were treated with chemotherapy before delivery and 3 of them were kept under observation and started treatment after delivery. RESULTS: All 6 women gave birth to a healthy female. CONCLUSIONS: The pregnancy does not worsen the course of the illness and does not compromise long-term clinical remission and recovery.
