Abstract

Colorectal Cancer is common and it will often present with metastases during the course of the disease and follow-up. Usually metastasis affects liver and lungs, but other organs may also be involved. We report the case of a patient who had cancer in the recto-sigmoid transition in 2002 and had a recurrence 14 years after surgery with metastasis in the uterine body. The patient had the tumor resected and was given adjuvant chemotherapy. It is important to consider this possibility in patients with prior history of neoplasm that presents with abnormal vaginal bleeding.
