Abstract

Adenosquamous carcinoma of the uterine cervix is a rare mixture of malignant glandular and squamous epithelial elements. We present a case of a 56-year-old woman with Stage IV cervical carcinoma treated with paclitaxel and carboplatin chemotherapy after cytoreductive surgery. Solitary liver metastases were treated by ultrasound guided percutaneous sclerotherapy with 95% ethanol. For ten months the patient showed an objective response to the treatment with a good quality of life during that time. A year after the first, the second cytoreductive operation was performed and chemotherapy (paclitaxel, carboplatin, and epiru­bicin) followed. The patient died 20 months after establishing the diagnosis. Paclitaxel in combination with carboplatin as adjuvant chemotherapeutic treatment could be another promising agent for patients with advanced metastatic cervical adenocarcinoma.
