Cervical cancer is the most common gynecologic cancer, accounting for 22.2% of all cancers in Korean women and is almost of squamous cell type. The reported incidence of adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix varies from 4 to 20% of all cervical malignancies, and have shown an increase in the percentage of adenocarcinoma. Adenocarcinoma may have a slightly poorer prognosis than squamous cell carcinoma for each stage of disease. Pulmonary metastases are observed in 2~9% of patients and correlates with stage of disease. We report a case of cervical adenocarcinoma with pulmonary metastases simulating miliary tuberculosis. These metastases was confirmed by open lung biopsy.
Key words: Adenocarcinoma;Cervix;Pulmonary metastasis
