Resumo: Although uterine prolapse and carcinoma of the uterine cervix are not rare events, their association is very uncommon. The treatment of cervical cancer has been protocolled, but the management of uterovaginal prolapse associated with carcinoma of the cervix is not standardised and therapy strategies vary considerably among authors. Our case reports a 74-year-old patient, admitted to the emergency department with an ulcerated prolapsed uterus. Biopsy of the cervical lesion confirmed a squamous-cell carcinoma. The patient underwent vaginal hysterectomy plus open bilateral iliopelvic lymphadenectomy complemented with radiotherapy with quimiosensibilisation. With this aggressive treatment approach, there was progression of the disease. The authors believe that this case typiaddition to the few published reports.
