Abstract

Brain metastases from cervical carcinomas are extremely rare. We report a patient with squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix who developed an isolated left parietooccipital lobe metastasis within 4 months of treatment of the primary disease. The presenting symptoms of the metastatic disease were visual disturbance, headache, and vomiting. The patient was successfully treated by surgical excision of the metastasis and adjuvant whole brain radiation therapy, and she was disease-free at the 6-month follow-up after treatment of the recurrence.
