Abstract

The aim of this study is to present a rare case of Mullerian adenosarcoma of the cervix with ovarian metastasis and sarcomatous overgrowth. A gravida 2, para 2 woman aged 32 years with vaginal bleeding was admitted to the gynecology department. A 3-4 cm polypoid mass protruding from the cervix was detected in a pelvic examination. Total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingoopherectomy was performed because of metastatic implants on the right ovary. The pathologic evaluation revealed Mullerian adenosarcoma of the cervix with sarcomatous overgrowth and ovarian metastasis. After surgery, the patient was planned to undergo chemo- and radiotherapy. This is the first cervical Mullerian adenosarcoma case mentioned in the literature with metastasis to the ovary in a young woman. There is no optimal management option for cervical adenosarcomas due to the rarity of this phenomenon. Nevertheless, even if the patient is young and imaging techniques do not elucidate metastatic disease, surgeons should evaluate the ovaries for the spread of tumor, especially if histology reveals sarcomatous overgrowth.
