A Rare Presentation of Recurrence of Endometrial Carcinoma to Abdominal Wall: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
- 22 Downloads
Endometrial carcinoma is the fourth most common carcinoma in females worldwide. Due to early symptoms, these are diagnosed at an early stage and thus have a good prognosis. Recurrences usually occur to the pelvic and para-aortic lymph nodes, vagina, peritoneum, and lungs. They occur rarely in the bones, brain, intra-abdominal organs, abdominal wall, and muscle.
We present a case of a 42-years-old nulliparous female with diagnosed carcinoma of the endometrium who underwent total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy with surgical staging and presented after 30 months with an isolated recurrence of endometrioid carcinoma at an atypical location on the anterior abdominal wall.
