Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 29 year old expectant mother was critically ill at 27 weeks gestation with disseminated metastatic malignant melanoma and was treated with dacarbazine. A dramatic remission was induced and at 38 weeks gestation she went into labour spontaneously and delivered a healthy infant. She relapsed and died eight weeks post partum. This is the first reported use of dacarbazine in pregnancy.
