Skin metastases originated from cervical cancer: A rare case report

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Introduction: Metastases in cervical cancer could be spread through direct local invasion, lymphatic dissemination, or hematogenous dissemination. The most common sites of distant metastases are lungs, bone, and liver. Skin metastases from cervical cancer are categorized as a rare occurrence of metastases. This rarity of the cases has led us to report it. Case description: A 66-year-old multiparous woman diagnosed with stage IIA cervical cancer seven years ago, then she came into our outpatient clinic complained about a brownish white color mass on the left side of the neck that keeps getting bigger over time came from a skin lesion. The lesion was first treated with topical steroid but there was no improvement. Biopsy was done and the result showed a carcinoma metastasis that led to adenosquamous carcinoma or cervical adenocarcinoma. The patient went through chemoradiation with biosensitizer paclitaxel 120 mg/m2 for six cycles, which began in August 2019 until October 2019. The treatment progress showed a promising result. We observed the patient during treatment until two months after finishing the treatment. At the last visit, the patient came to our outpatient clinic, the mass size decreased significantly, and the skin showed an excellent regeneration sign. Conclusion: The physicians should always consider the patient's history and pay more attention to skin lesions in patients with a history of cervical cancer. The physicians should also perform a thorough physical examination and biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.
