Abstract  
We present a case with Krukenberg tumors diagnosed in the first trimester of pregnancy. Ultrasound (US) led to early suspicion of the disease and serial scans allowed the natural course of metastatic gastric cancer to be followed. Successful treatment with palliative surgery and chemotherapy resulted in good maternal and foetal outcomes. International collaboration whereby the US findings were discussed with leading European experts enabled faster decision making during the clinical work-up of this rare case.
