Abstract A 21-year-old, gravida 1, para O, woman presented at approximately 25 weeks gestation with a large Ewing's sarcoma involving her iliac wing. She was treated with multiagent chemotherapy before a successful Cesarean delivery of a normal infant at approximately 34 weeks gestation. Four years later both the mother and child are doing well. The literature regarding sarcoma occurring during pregnancy and that regarding multiagent chemotherapy in pregnant patients is reviewed. Chemotherapy should be instituted early in the course of many malignant sarcomas, despite pregnancy, to prevent the occurrence of metastases.
