The objective of this study is to review the implantation of malignant cells of cervical cancer in an episiotomy site. This is the second case of cervical cancer with concomitant episiotomy metastasis in the literature. The treatment consisted of radiochemotherapy. There was no confirmed recurrent disease after 1 year of follow-up in our reported case. In conclusion, pregnancy appears to be a chance for cervical cancer screening as a part of prenatal care. If cervical cancer is diagnosed in a woman after vaginal delivery, she must be examined carefully including the episiotomy site.
