Two patients (age 36, and 48 years) with breast cancer developed primary cervical cancer, 2 and 9 years later. First patient with FIGO, stage IB underwent Wertheim's radical hysterectomy followed by adjuvant chemotherapy and is currently on radiotherapy. Second patient with FIGO, stage IIB achieved complete response with pelvic radiotherapy and is currently alive and disease-free 5 years since the diagnosis. Breast cancer patients must be kept on a close and longterm follow up.
