Pelvic exanteration is a higly morbid and even mortal surgical procedure which requires a multidiscipilinary approach.


Here we present a case of recurrent vulvar cancer invading the anus with inguinal lymph node metastases and without lateral pelvic side wall invasion.


Recurrent pelvic tumors without lateral pelvic side wall invasion are good candidates for pelvic exanteration. A delicate diagnostic work up, such as pelvic MRI, and pathologic examination and a good surgical tehnique are crucial inorder to achive excellent results.
