Abstract

We report a case of duodenal metastasis from squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix confirmed by histopathological diagnosis. A 48-year-old woman was diagnosed with uterine cervix cancer stage IVB and underwent chemotherapy. During follow-up after chemotherapy, a mass suspicious of malignancy was found at the 3rd portion of the duodenum on the magnetic resonance imaging of the abdomen. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy with biopsy was done for an ulcerofungating mass at the 3rd portion of the duodenum. Squamous cell carcinoma was confirmed on the biopsy which was same as the histopathological diagnosis confirmed by cervix biopsy and right supraclavicular lymph node biopsy resulting from metastasis of cervix. Since 1981, only ten cases of small bowel metastasis from squamous cell carcinoma of cervix have been reported. It is exceedingly rare to find metastasis to the duodenum from uterine cervix cancer.
