Intestinal metastases usually represent a late stage of disease in which other haematogenous metastases are also frequently found. It is exceedingly rare for squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix to metastases to the jejunum.
This case report describes about a case of 50 years old female presented to the surgical out patient department with vomiting and pain per abdomen. Resection and primary anastomosis of involved jejunal wall was performed.
