Metastasis of gastric cancer to the uterine cervix is rare, and a case of metastasis to the uterine cervix from early gastric cancer has never before been reported. We here present a patient who underwent a gastrectomy due to asymptomatic early gastric cancer found by chance and who subsequently suffered from a solitary metastasis to the uterine cervix from the primary early gastric cancer. Similar to Krukenberg tumors of the ovary, lymphatic dissemination is regarded as the route of metastasis from the stomach to the uterine cervix. We surmise that the present metastasis occurred through the lymphatic channel because lymph vessel permeations were found in both the primary lesion of the stomach and the metastatic lesion of the uterine cervix.
