A Case of Recurrent Endometrial Carcinoma at the Vagina

Abstract

FIGO stage III endometrial carcinoma, which is extending outside the uterus, but limited to the true pelvis represent a small subgroup of patients with endometrial carcinoma. This stage of disease is uncommon and only limited experience is available regarding the management of this advanced stage of disease. And isolated vaginal recurrence of endometrial carcinoma occurs infrequently following hysterectomy and appropriate use of external beam irradiation and brachytherapy. We experienced one case of recurrent endometrial carcinoma at the vagina after total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and adjuvant radiotherapy for stage III endometrial cancer in 41-year old woman who was treated with complete local excision of vaginal recurrent cancer mass and locovaginal radiotherapy. The clinicopathologic finding and a review of literature on endometrial carcinoma were described briefly.
