The authors report a case of advanced rectal cancer in a pregnant woman of 30 years of age. It was a glandular adenocarcinoma discovered in the second trimester of pregnancy. The clinical picture was one of rectal bleeding with digestive disturbances. The patient had a caesarean operation at 29 weeks of amenorrhoea because of a change in her general state. Post-operatively palliative chemotherapy was started. The patient died on the 13th day.
