We report a case of papillary adenocarcinoma of uterus which developed a recurrence over the scar of surgery. The patient initially underwent surgery followed by adjuvant chemoradiotherapy for her stage II disease. She was disease-free until 21 months when she developed a small mass over the lower site of incisional scar. Fine needle aspiration cytology from this swelling revealed metastatic papillary adenocarcinoma similar to previous histopathology. Treatment of the scar recurrence consisted of palliative radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
