Abstract

Thirty-five patients with invasive cervical carcinoma discovered in a uterus removed for benign indications were evaluated and treated from 1961 through 1983. Although formal staging was not possible, patients with presumed stage IA disease had a 100% five-year survival rate regardless of the addition of adjuvant therapy. All patients with more advanced disease received radiation therapy. Patients with presumed stage IB disease had a corrected five-year survival rate of 78%, and those with presumed stage IIB disease had a corrected five-year survival rate of 67%. No patient in this series was thought to have disease more advanced than a stage IIB equivalent. The hysterectomy alone may have been adequate therapy for patients with presumed stage IA disease. Adjuvant radiation therapy appears to be effective treatment for patients with presumed stage IB or IIB disease.
