Abstract

Musculoskeletal metastasis of endometrial carcinoma is rare. Data regarding the management of metastatic disease to these sites is limited. We report a case of a 73-year-old woman who had surgery for endometrial adenocarcinoma (FIGO stage IB, Grade II) followed by vaginal cuff brachytherapy and one year later developed an isolated recurrence in the sacrum and iliopsoas muscle. She was treated with chemotherapy followed by whole pelvis radiation and a complete clinical response was achieved. At her last follow up, 12 months after the completion of the radiation, she had no clinical or radiologic evidence of disease.
