Abstract Share this page

Gynecologic cancers metastatic to bone are a rare entity, and a metastasis to the mandible at initial presentation is even more infrequently seen. We present a case of a 71-year-old woman with stage IV endometrial cancer with a metastasis to the mandible, with no other sites of distal spread apparent. The endometrial tumor was a FIGO grade III adenocarcinoma. The pathologic evaluation of the mandibular lesion revealed poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma with focal squamous differentiation. She was treated with a total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, radiation therapy to the mandible, and chemotherapy consisting of Taxol and carboplatin for six cycles. She had a complete response, but 10 months after the original diagnosis developed spinal cord compression and progressive disease in the pelvis. Patients in good clinical condition with a single bone metastasis should be treated aggressively, as survival can be extended.
