Recently with more effective treatment strategies for cervical cancer, larger numbers of patients survive and greater incidence of second malignant neoplasms have been diagnosed. Patients after treatment of cervical cancer have a 2.5-37% lifetime risk of developing a second squamous cell malignancy of the lower genital tract (1). This risk is 5 to 12 times higher compared to general population (2). In our case report we attempted to analyze clinical characteristics of a patient with vulvar carcinoma following cervical cancer treatment with particular focus on the etiology such as HPV, radiation therapy and genetic instability, prognostic factors and treatment result.
