Abstract

Introduction: There is no established treatment for vaginal cancer at present. Cases of squamous cell carcinoma reported in the literature have been treated primarily by radiotherapy. We report a case of pT4 vaginal adenocarcinoma, in which radical surgery seemed to prolong the disease-free period.
