Abstract

We report a patient with squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix metastatic to the duodenum in whom the diagnosis was made at endoscopic biopsy of an obstructing pyloric mass. Failure to consider metastatic disease as the cause of an abnormal appearance of the duodenum resulted in a considerable delay in diagnosis. We present a brief review of cervical carcinoma metastatic to the bowel.
