Abstract

Review of the admissions to the Gynecologic Oncology Service at the University of Alabama Medical Center over a 12-year period reveals that 1% of all referrals had nongynecologic malignancies. Duration of symptoms was short; of 40 patients with adequate follow-up, 31 (77%) were dead from their cancer, with a median survival of eight months. The value of diagnostic radiologic procedures was assessed and, while these procedures proved helpful, most patients required a surgical procedure (often a reoperation) to establish the diagnosis.
