Abstract

The change in life expectancy affects the presentation and the prognosis of elderly patients with gynaecological cancer. The authors performed a literature review in order to clarify if there are any changes in the treatment of such patients, and if their management should be considered to be individualized, depending on their age and comorbidities.
