Objective: To present a rare case of uterine cervical carcinoma of 2008 International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stage IB1 (pT2bN0M0), with extensive vaginal lesions treated by minimally invasive surgery. Case report: The vaginal mucosa of the patient was affected by intraepithelial carcinoma with focal invasion at almost the entire area. The whole lesions were completely removed by total laparoscopic radical hysterectomy and complete vaginectomy. Conclusions: The technique described in this report appears to be safe and feasible, and may be a useful option for the treatment of similar cases.
