Postoperative tailored radiotherapy for locally advanced breast carcinoma during pregnancy: a therapeutic dilemma



Postoperative tailored radiotherapy for locally advanced breast carcinoma during pregnancy: a therapeutic dilemma



American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology 183(2): 498-499



A 45-year-old woman with breast carcinoma was found to be pregnant during postoperative radiotherapy. The pregnancy was desired. We performed in vivo and phantom radiation dosimetry. No effects on the embryo or treatment disadvantages for the patient were expected. Thirty-six months post partum the baby is healthy and the mother is free of disease.
