Cervical cancers spread locally through the angiolymphatic apparatus and very rarely metastasize to the brain. The intracranial metastasis is a late event and a sign of poor prognosis. We present two cases of uterine cervical carcinomas with brain metastasis presenting with severe headaches in one case and hemiparesis and aphasia in the other one. Palliative craniotomy and debulking of the tumor was performed in both patients.
