Brain metastases from cervical cancer are uncommon and are usually considered incurable. Characterization of presentation and a consensus on standard effective treatment have not been published. We present a case in which long-term disease-free survival has been achieved by surgical resection of a solitary brain metastasis with postoperative whole brain radiation. The world literature is examined and discussed in relation to this experience.
