The present study aimed to present a rare case of successful pregnancy within 6 months from cranial mass surgery and postsurgical radiotherapy. A 32-year-old female with gestational age of 19 weeks had been refereed with a past medical history of recently treated brain astrocytoma. Close obstetric monitoring had been planned; the pregnancy was complicated with severe preeclampsia at the gestational age of 36 weeks, which leads to successful delivery. Pregnancy in patients with a history of cancer has been the focus of studies today and in many cancers it is recommended to delay pregnancy for at least 2 years. The prognosis of such a patient after unplanned pregnancy conception could be more complex; and the present case report aimed to explain about it. The goal of this presentation was to emphasis on the possibility of fertility preservation in the patient with malignancy even after cranial mass surgery and radiotherapy.
