Pseudomyxoma peritonei is a rare, chronic relapsing disease in which tumor cells in the abdomen produce excessive mucin with a significant mortality rate. We describe a young unmarried nulligrava who underwent fertility preservation by in vitro fertilisation and embryo cryopreservation prior to radical surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy. Pregnancy was achieved, although complicated by obstructive uropathy. She delivered a healthy infant at 32 weeks' gestation. The few descriptions of fertility and pregnancy outcome in pseudomyxoma peritonei that appear in the literature are reviewed.
