BACKGROUND: Pregnancy after cytoreductive surgery and intraperitoneal chemotherapy is rare. CASE: We present the case of a 25-year-old woman with appendiceal carcinoid tumor treated with intraperitoneal cisplatin for peritoneal recurrence after a fertility-sparing cytoreductive procedure. Five years after her procedure, she conceived with the help of assisted reproductive technologies and delivered a viable term fetus via cesarean delivery. She subsequently had a successful second pregnancy and is currently alive without evidence of her disease. CONCLUSION: Conception is possible after tumor debulking and intraperitoneal chemotherapy. In unique clinical situations, fertility-sparing surgery may be considered in young patients who desire future pregnancy.
