Abstract

Seventeen patients who presented with stage I squamous carcinoma of the cervix between 1969 and 1974 are reviewed. Thirteen of the patients were treated by means of radical irradiation, 3 by Wertheim's hysterectomy and 1 by a simple hysterectomy and postoperative pelvic irradiation. Two patients died 2 yr after presentation, 1 from metastases and 1 from unrelated causes. The remaining 15 patients were well with no evidence of malignancy 5 yr after presentation.
