Abstract

PURPOSE:

Bone metastasis secondary to vulvar carcinoma is an infrequent clinical entity. Only ten cases have been published in the literature. We describe a case of squamous vulvar carcinoma, that presented with cervical vertebral involvement, as a part of distant spread.

CASE:

A 69-year-old woman presented with radicular pain and a painful cervical mass. MRI of the cervical spine was performed, showing an osteolytic lesion with spinal cord compression.

CONCLUSION:

This case was unique in presenting vertebral metastasis eight months after chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
