Author information

  • 1Department of Surgery, Ogawa Red Cross Hospital, Saitama, Japan.


A 59-year-old woman underwent a radical hysterectomy for a metastatic uterine cervix tumor caused by rectal carcinoma, which had been previously resected. Metastatic carcinoma from the large bowel to the uterus is rare. A total of 48 patients (including nine Japanese patients) with metastasis from the large bowel to the uterus were reviewed. The metastatic site of the uterus was the cervix in 27 cases and the corpus in 18. The interval between primary carcinoma and the secondary diagnosis was 17 months. The mean survival after the diagnosis of the secondary deposit was 11 months. Our patient died of lymph node, lung, local and bone metastases 7 months after the diagnosis of the secondary deposit.
