Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A rare, so far unpublished, case of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 26-year-old pregnant woman is presented. As X ray examination and other investigations were avoided during her pregnancy, the discrete signs of spinal cord compression led to sudden severe neurological deterioration after delivery. This necessitated emergency decompression and stabilization of the spine. Acute surgical treatment resulted in complete functional recovery. It was followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy, which led to disease-free survival 7 years after the surgery. Magnetic resonance imaging is the examination of choice when long-lasting back pain during pregnancy does not resolve with bed rest.
