PMID:  23091900     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Process    
PURPOSE: Bone metastasis secondary to vulvar carcinoma is an infrequent clinical entity. Only ten cases have been published in the literature. We describe a case of squamous vulvar carcinoma, that presented with cervical vertebral involvement, as a part of distant spread.
CASE: A 69-year-old woman presented with radicular pain and a painful cervical mass. MRI of the cervical spine was performed, showing an osteolytic lesion with spinal cord compression.
CONCLUSION: This case was unique in presenting vertebral metastasis eight months after chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
