Squamous cell carcinoma is one of the commonest malignancies of the uterine cervix and it is a significantly rare phenomenon of metastases to the bilateral ovaries by endometrial and transtubal spreading in the absence of lymph node involvement. The data is limited because it is still difficult to determine the optimal treatment and the prognostic significance is uncertain. We report a 66-year-old woman with squamous cell carcinoma, International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage Ia2, without previous radiation therapy, associated with superficial spreading squamous cell cervical carcinoma involving the entire endometrial cavity, bilateral tubes and bilateral ovaries.
