PMID:  17107534     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We describe the study of a patient with metastatic melanoma to axillary nodes presenting during pregnancy. The factors considered in her management are discussed, including issues related to staging, the decision not to terminate the pregnancy and the relative efficacy and fetal toxicity of the available treatment options. An overview of the known effects of radiotherapy on the fetus is presented and the technical alterations that were used to decrease the toxicity of radiotherapy are discussed.
