A conservative surgical approach is considered feasible. Only three cases of VPA and pregnancy have been reported. Case. A 34-year-old asymptomatic woman was diagnosed of a well-differentiated VPA without extracervical spread of the disease. A cold knife conization was performed. Five years later, the patient became pregnant. The pregnancy developed without complications and was finished with a caesarean delivery, due to nonreassuring fetal status. A healthy child was born. Last control 8 years later showed no evidence of disease. Conclusions. A successful pregnancy can be completed in patients with VPA without lymph-vascular invasion treated in a conservative way. This management is particularly desirable in young women to preserve reproductive capability.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/51090||ISSN:||0090-8258||DOI:||10.1016/j.ygyno.2005.09.059||Source:||Gynecologic Oncology[ISSN 0090-8258],v. 101(1), p. 168-171 (Abril 2006)|
