Cancer is an uncommon event in pregnancy. The most common gestational cancers arise from the breast and cervix. Although lung cancer is the most common malignancy, its occurrence in pregnancy is a distinctly rare event. Diagnosing it during pregnancy is an additional challenge as the pregnancy, common respiratory ailments, and the lung cancer can have overlapping symptoms. We report an uncommon histological variant of lung cancer – giant cell carcinoma, which resulted in a fatal outcome in a 26-year-old pregnant woman. A high level of suspicion and vigilance should be exercised during pregnancy to diagnose such rarer entities.
