 Abstract
Introduction and objective
. The study presents the problem of immune disturbances in pregnant women with vulvar carcinoma in situ (VIN3).
Material and methods. NK cell and T reg activity in the study patient were analysed using flow cytometry.
Results. Decreased NK cell activity and but increased T reg activity were observed after vulvectomy, with subsequent successful pregnancy outcome.
Conclusions. Although vulvar cancer may influence immune cell activity, this issue merits further study
