Abstract

A 58 years old woman was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix FIGO stage IIB and was treated by concomitant radio-chemotherapy followed by simple hysterectomy. Several months later a single metastasis to the skull was diagnosed. The patient underwent craniotomy and radiotherapy and achieved a prolonged disease free survival of 20 months. Bone metastases from cervical carcinoma are usually part of widespread metastatic disease. Skull metastases are extremely rare. Selected cases of solitary bone metastases can be treated radically and achieve long term disease free survival.
