Liposarcoma complicating pregnancy.

Gynecologic Oncology 2001 December
BACKGROUND: An adnexal mass in pregnancy is a common occurrence. Malignancy is uncommon and only seven cases of liposarcoma have been reported in association with pregnancy.

CASE: We present a case of a pregnant patient who was diagnosed with an adnexal mass detected by ultrasound at 13 weeks gestation. The mass was surgically removed postpartum, when it was found to be a liposarcoma. Postoperatively she received chemotherapy but eventually succumbed to her disease.

CONCLUSIONS: Liposarcoma is rarely found in association with pregnancy and may follow an aggressive course.
