Abstract

Even though uncommon the management of a malignant disease during pregnancy is a clinical challenge to the obstetrician as a favourable outcome is expected for both the mother and baby. We report a successful management of a 21-year old mother, who was in her first pregnancy and found to be in the chronic phase of chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) in the second trimester of her pregnancy, at DGH, Nuwaraeliya.
