Extra-pelvic spread of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the cervix to the stomach is extremely rare. We report a case of a 50-year-old woman who presented with dysphagia two years after diagnosis of SCC of the cervix. At esophagogastroduodenoscopy, there was a 1.5x1.2 cm sized ulcero-fungating mass at the cardia portion just beneath the esophagogastric junction which was biopsied for a suspected neoplastic lesion. Histologic and immunohistochemical examinations showed a SCC with characteristics identical to her original tumor from the cervix confirming gastric metastasis. Therefore, we report a case of endocervical SCC with metastatic lesions in the stomach 2 years after the initial diagnosis.
Key Words: Carcinoma, Squamous cell; Uterine cervical neoplasms; Neoplasms metastasis
