IF Abdul, OR Balogun, G Ezeoke, AD Ajiboye


A case of a 47 year old nulliparous woman with advanced cervical cancer coexisting with uterine fibroid is presented. The nulliparity and the presence of Fibroids presented diagnostic challenges especially because epidemiologically the factors present are not commonly associated. Diagnosis was assisted by a thorough examination under anaesthesia, then clinical staging with histological confirmation and subsequent referral for radiotherapy.

Key words: cervical cancer, nulliparity, uterine fibroid
