There is always a therapeutic dilemma faced by the gynaecologic oncologist and the maternal foetal specialist regarding management of pregnancy with cervical malignancy. A 30 years old, multiparous woman diagnosed to have squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix FIGO stage IB1 in the early second trimester was treated by radical hysterectomy followed by radiotherapy is being reported. The various therapeutic options and prognosis are discussed.
