Endocervical adenocarcinoma and vulval Paget's disease: a significant association

Br J Dermatol. 1980 Oct;103(4):443-8. doi: 10.1111/j.1365-2133.1980.tb07269.x.


Extra-mammary Paget's disease is an uncommon entity. It has been associated with a underlying sweat gland carcinoma. This paper presents a patient with metastatic endocervical carcinoma and vulval Paget's disease. We believe that the Paget's disease developed as a direct consequence of the cervical tumour. In patients with extra-mammary Paget's disease with no sweat gland carcinoma a careful search to exclude other primary malignant tumours is advised.
