Primary hepatoid carcinoma of ovary in pregnancy Academic Article uri icon


  • We report a rare case of a 35-year-old woman with primary hepatoid carcinoma of the ovary during pregnancy associated with abnormal levels of maternal serum α-fetoprotein. This tumor should be considered in the differential diagnosis of pregnant women with very high levels of maternal serum α-fetoprotein whenever other maternal or fetal sources are excluded.(Am J Obstet Gynecol 1998; 179: 820-2.)
