Unusual Peritoneal Metastasis of Late Recurrent Uterine Cervical Cancer: A Case Report and Literature Review

  • 1Department of Radiology, Eulji University Hospital, Daejeon, Korea


Uterine cervical cancer is one of the most common malignancies of the female genital tract. Most recurrent cases of uterine cervical cancer are diagnosed within two years after primary treatment, and late recurrence after a disease-free interval of more than five years is rare. In addition, peritoneal metastases usually present as multifocal discrete nodules in the peritoneal cavity with nodular or diffuse peritoneal thickening. Herein, we report an extremely rare case of late recurrent cervical cancer peritoneal metastasis with an unusual manifestation of a large, solitary necrotic mass in the right subphrenic space on contrast-enhanced CT.
