Abstract

Patients with adenocarcinoma of the cervix usually present with either abnormal vaginal bleeding or abnormal papanicolaou smears. Rarely, they may present with an abdominopelvic mass. We report two patients with occult cervical adenocarcinoma who presented with an abdominopelvic mass and vaginal bleeding which simulated a primary ovarian cancer.
