Two cases occurred of colon carcinoma complicating pregnancy. Both patients presented with occult blood in the stool and iron deficiency anemia; that makes their cases different from the 20 previously reported ones of colon carcinoma above the peritoneal reflection associated with pregnancy. These cases illustrate the importance of a rectal examination and stool guiaic test in evaluating iron deficiency anemia in pregnancy.
