Introduction/Background Cervical cancer is a major health problem and the second most common cancer in women after breast cancer in Morocco. Epidermoid carcinoma is the most frequent histological type. surgical treatment is widely used in early stages. Adjuvant treatment is indicated according to the FIGO stage of the tumor.

Methodology three cases having early stage of epidermoid carcinoma treated in the department of gynecology-obstetrics I at the CHU Hassan II in Fez over a two years period were analysed retrospectively.

Results Patient age ranged from 28 to 52 years, with an average of 41. Two patients presented with induced metrorrhagia and the third with an abnormal cervico-vaginal screening. biopsy were performed on all our patients finding an epidermoid carcinoma. One patiente was treated. treatment consisted of conisation for one patient and wertheim-type surgery for the others. two of our patients received adjuvant treatment.

Conclusion Cervical cancer is very often curable, with a survival rate of almost 85% for stages I and II, and over 50% for advanced tumours. unfortunately, our patients most often consult us at an advanced stage.
