Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The phenomenon of spontaneous regression of cancer is rarely seen or proven, but the sporadic cases reported encourage scientists from the various fields of human biology to search for an explanation for these amazing anecdotal events. Metastatic endometrial carcinoma has a grave prognosis and few patients survive more than 5 years. A case of Stage IV endometrial carcinoma in a patient who received partial treatment but has survived for 18 years without evidence of disease is presented. Apparently, spontaneous regression does occur, although the characteristics of such a phenomenon are yet unknown.
