Abstract

Introduction:

Carcinoma cervix is the second most common female carcinoma. Every year in India, 1,22,844 women are diagnosed with carcinoma cervix and of them 67,477 die. Carcinoma cervix rates among women in the age group between 30-64 has decreased by 1.8% per year on average but still date account for 16%. Of these, advanced carcinoma are about 80% and early are only 20%.

Case Series:

We are reporting 5 consecutive early carcinoma cervix cases who presented with pyometra and got treated at our hospital from April 2015-September 2015. Cases of early carcinoma cervix presented with pyometra were treated by pyometra drainage, intravenous antibiotics and appropriate treatment in the form of surgery (4 cases underwent Wertheim's hysterectomy and 1 case had radical chemo radiation as she opted for same in view of high cardiac risk for anaesthesia). All 5 of them are disease free at the end of treatment with follow up of minimum 4 months duration (range 4-10).

Conclusion:

The idea is to emphasize that all carcinoma cervix with pyometra are not necessarily advanced and can still be given radical treatment like surgery or radiotherapy after pyometra drainage.
