Abstract

This paper describes a case of cancer of the uterine cervix metastasizing in the spleen two years after the primary carcinoma was diagnosed and treated. After detailed diagnostics, the patient was subjected to surgery. Histopathological examination after splenectomy confirmed a very rare case - presence of metastases of planocellular carcinoma of the uterine cervix. Over the last ten years, references cite isolated cases of metastases of adenocarcinoma of the colon, stomach and breast in the spleen as well as lung carcinoma and malignant skin melanoma. Until now cases of uterine cervix carcinoma metastasizing to the spleen have been published as micrometastases detected in autopsy material.
