Carcinoma of cervix usually spreads contiguously to the adjacent organs, by lymphatics to the pelvic and para-aortic lymph nodes and by hematogenous route to distant organs. The common sites of distant metastasis are lung, supraclavicular lymph nodes, liver, and bones. The brain is a rare site of metastasis. We report here a rare case of a 72-year-old woman with carcinoma of cervix, FIGO stage IIA, who developed metastases to the brain.
