The effectiveness of multidrug treatment by bleomycin, methotrexate, and cis-platinum in advanced vaginal carcinoma

Gynecol Oncol. 1985 May;21(1):101-2. doi: 10.1016/0090-8258(85)90238-0.


A case of a female with advanced squamous carcinoma of the vagina is presented. Complete disappearance of the primary tumor and involved inguinal lymph nodes was achieved with three courses of the cis-platinum-containing chemotherapy regimen BMP administered prior to radiotherapy. The encouraging result obtained warrants the use of this combined treatment modality in other patients.
