BACKGROUND: Rarely is late recurrence from cervical cancer diagnosed at the episiotomy site. We report a case of a patient diagnosed with squamous cell cervical cancer at the time of delivery. CASE: Recurrence at the episiotomy site was noted more than 5 years after initial diagnosis of cervical cancer and was treated with surgery and radiotherapy. The patient has had no evidence of disease 54 months after treatment. CONCLUSION: After review of the literature, it appears that surgery combined with radiotherapy is recommended over single modality treatments.
