Abstract

Documented reports of maternal malignancy metastatic to the placenta and fetus are rare. From 1866 until the present there have been 52 cases reported in the Western literature. We report a case of maternal large-cell carcinoma of the lung metastatic to the maternal brain and the placenta without fetal involvement.
