Author
Organization
Abstract
A mesonephric adenocarcinoma of the cervix is a very rare tumor deriving from remnants of the mesonephric duct. Differential diagnosis from other cervical carcinomas is difficult and little is known regarding its biological behavior, prognosis, and the optimal management strategy.We present a case of a mesonephric adenocarcinoma of the cervixwith a comprehensive reviewof the existing literature. In this case a 66-year-oldwoman presented with postmenopausal vaginal bleeding. Shewas diagnosedwith a FIGO stage IIB mesonephric adenocarcinoma of the cervix and treated with neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy and aWertheim hysterectomy. The recovery from surgery was uneventful and the patient remains with no evidence of disease with 2 years of follow-up.
