The case report of a 38-year-old woman with a pelvic abscess resulting from verrucous carcinoma of the uterine cervix is presented. This case is remarkable because the abscess formed a fistula through the anterior abdominal wall and because there was no visible lesion on the cervix. The patient underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy, left salpingectomy, fistulectomy, and removal of the abscess. Diagnosis was made on pathologic examination of the extirpated specimen. Genital tract verrucous carcinoma and genitocutaneous fistulae are reviewed.
