Objectives Because primary carcinoma of the vagina comprises less than 2% of all gynecologic malignancies, the management of metastasis is not well know.
Methods We reported the surgical management of metastasis of primary vaginal in 2 patients treated in Salah Azaiz institute on 1994 and 2006.
Results The first patient was 37 years old and had a primary neuroendocrine tumor of vagina and the second patient was 68 years old and had a primary adenocarcinoma of vagina. The first patient was staged as stage I of FIGO and the second as stage IV of FIGO. The two patients underwent surgery as primary treatment followed by chemoradiotherapy. And they were free of disease. Fourteen years later, the first patient developed a lung metastasis managed with surgery and oncologic results were successful (lived for 3 years after). The second patient developed a brain metastasis managed with surgery and followed by prophylactic radiotherapy; the patient was free of disease during her follow up period (2 years).
Conclusions We reported a successful surgical management of metastasis of primary vaginal carcinoma in two patients; our findings seem to be interesting due the lack of data about the management of those metastasis.
