Evaluation and Management of Lymphoma and Leukemia in PregnancyCOHEN, JONATHON B. MD; BLUM, KRISTIE A. MDClinical Obstetrics & Gynecology: December 2011 - Volume 54 - Issue 4 - p 556–566 doi: 10.1097/GRF.0b013e318236e68a Cancer In Pregnancy Abstract Author Information Abstract Cancer complicates roughly 1 in 1000 pregnancies with roughly 18% of these cases represented by the hematologic malignancies. These can range from an indolent lymphoma requiring only close monitoring to acute, life-threatening, processes requiring emergent therapy, and evaluation for potential termination of the pregnancy. Management of a pregnant woman with a hematologic malignancy requires a multidisciplinary approach combining the expertise of hematologists, obstetricians, and perinatologists to accomplish the best possible outcome. Many women are able to be treated successfully and deliver healthy babies. Author Information Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Hematology, The Arthur G.
