Ovarian carcinoma in pregnancy remains a rare event. Although concern regarding the gestation complicates therapy, platinum drug-based combination chemotherapy is often deemed warranted in such cases. We report the antepartum use of cisplatin, followed by carboplatin, for an ovarian serous cystadenocarcinoma. During this treatment, serial sonographic assessment of fetal morphometric parameters and biophysical profiles with fetal heart rate monitoring were performed to document fetal well being. Platinum-DNA adducts were measured in maternal blood, placenta, fetal amniotic cells, and cord blood. This report represents an attempt to define platinum drug transfer in utero and fetal growth and development during therapy and to document the first use of carboplatin in pregnancy.
