Abstract

Abstract HIV infection among women is increasing in the United States. Since January 1993, cervical cancer has been considered an AIDS-defining illness. We report a rare case of squamous cell carcinoma arising in a teratoma of the uterine cervix in an HIV-infected patient. This patient was treated with a radical hysterectomy, para-aortic and pelvic lymphadenectomy. She is currently 1 year from treatment and is without evidence of recurrence.
