Abstract

Breast cancer is the second most common malignancy affecting pregnancy. Pregnancy-associated breast cancer (PABC) is defined as breast cancer diagnosed during pregnancy or in the first postpartum year. Because PABC is a relatively rare event surrounded by multiple variables, few studies address the best management and treatment options. We present a case of PABC to illustrate and highlight some of the recommendations for treatment, obstetric care, delivery management, and cancer surveillance.
