We report for the first time the impact of neoadjuvant oral low-dose chemotherapy consisting of oral trofosfamide, idarubicin, and etoposide (O-TIE) in the case of alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) in the lower jaw of an 18-year-old woman at 27 weeks of gestation, without fetal complications and a highly efficient anti-tumor response. Our study suggests the possible application of O-TIE treatment in a neoadjuvant setting during pregnancy and recommends a schedule that can be considered for the treatment of patients with high-risk sarcomas who cannot be treated with intensive chemotherapy for various reasons.
