Title ALK Rearrangement Positive Lung Adenocarcinoma in Pregnancy Treated With Alectinib: A Case Report.
Abstract Text There are few reported cases of ALK gene rearranged (ALK+) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) during pregnancy. There is a lack of information on the safety of ALK inhibitors in pregnant patients. We present a 25-year-old African American woman who was diagnosed with metastatic ALK+ lung adenocarcinoma at 15 weeks of gestation. Treatment with alectinib was initiated at 18 weeks' gestation with resultant radiological treatment response. The patient did not experience any adverse effects from alectinib during her pregnancy. An elective induction of labor at 39 weeks resulted in an uncomplicated vaginal delivery. This case adds to available data and provides insight on the safety of using alectinib in a pregnant, ALK+ NSCLC patient, allowing the patient to continue her pregnancy to term while treating advanced lung adenocarcinoma.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page. Filtering has no impact on query parameters.
  • Use quotes to match on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "mtor c1483f")


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending; however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column. Be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column before moving on to the next column.
