Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Patients with gynecologic malignancies may develop metastases throughout the neuraxis. Cervix-related carcinomatous meningitis is a distinctly unusual clinical event with only two previous cases reported in the English medical literature. We review clinical, radiographic, and pathologic findings of a woman with advanced adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix, whose course was complicated by leptomeningeal metastases. Carcinomatous meningitis occurs in the setting of rapidly advancing systemic disease and represents a terminal complication of cervical cancer.
