We report a 30-year-old woman with periampullary cancer and a large left ovarian cystadenoma presenting during pregnancy with features of duodenal obstruction. She had a right benign ovarian tumor removed a year back. She delivered an intrauterine-growth-retarded live baby. Laparotomy in the postpartum period revealed an unresectable periampullary growth with hepatic metastasis and a left ovarian cystadenoma. The ovarian tumor was removed and a palliative gastrojejunostomy performed.
