Abstract

A 60-year-old patient had undergone a subtotal hysterectomy through a standard laparotomy approach due to multiple uterine myomas 6 years before. She had a 1-month history of postmenopausal uterine bleeding. An endocervical polyp was found and excised. The histopathologic examination showed a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma. Magnetic resonance imaging of the abdomen and pelvis revealed the mass (4 × 2 × 2.5 cm) without parametrial involvement previously identified on vaginal examination. There was no retroperitoneal adenopathy. The patient was successfully treated with total laparoscopic radical trachelectomy in association with laparoscopic intraoperative detection of the sentinel lymph node. © 2005 AAGL.
