Background: Ovarian metastasis is rare in cases of early-stage uterine cervical cancer. For the patients with stage 1b cervical cancer, the incidences of ovarian metastasis were 0.22% of squamous cell carcinoma and 3.72% of adenocarcinoma. The safety of ovarian preservation is controversial for young women, although these women may find it important to preserve fertility.

Case: A 36-year-old Japanese woman underwent a loop electrosurgical excision procedure for cervical adenosquamous carcinoma with invasion of 0.8 mm in depth and 1 mm in horizontal extent. She wished to preserve her fertility and was therefore followed up without additional treatments. Thirty months after the loop electrosurgical excision procedure, she had 10 cm-diameter ovarian tumors and underwent hysterectomy, bilateral salpingooophorectomy, appendectomy. This ovarian tumor was revealed to metastasis from cervical carcinoma.

Conclusion: To our knowledge, this is first reported case of ovarian metastasis with microinvasive adenosquamous cell carcinoma. The pathological characteristics are important for prognosis: frequent small foci of invasion and high atypia.
