Two women presenting with invasive squamous cell cancer of the vulva during pregnancy are reported. The first patient was successfully treated by radical vulvectomy 2 weeks after cesarean section delivery; the second patient died of disseminated cancer despite radical vulvectomy and postoperative radiation therapy. In the second case the diagnosis was not established until 3 months after delivery. Only 12 cases of invasive squamous cell vulvar cancer during pregnancy have been previously reported. Liberal use of punch biopsy for any suspicious vulvar lesions is mandatory to enhance the potential for early diagnosis and successful treatment.
