Colon carcinoma complicating pregnancy. A report of two casesThe Journal of reproductive medicine
NLM Title AbbreviationJ Reprod Med
AbstractTwo cases occurred of colon carcinoma complicating pregnancy. Both patients presented with occult blood in the stool and iron deficiency anemia; that makes their cases different from the 20 previously reported ones of colon carcinoma above the peritoneal reflection associated with pregnancy. These cases illustrate the importance of a rectal examination and stool guiaic test in evaluating iron deficiency anemia in pregnancy.
