Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a case of microinvasive adenocarcinoma of the endocervix in a lady anxious for a family. Intracavitary radiotherapy using a specially designed 125-I bearing applicator allowed radical treatment of the endocervix whilst sparing the endometrium and ovaries and preserving fertility. The patient remains well and disease free following a successful pregnancy.
