Very few case reports are available in the literature regarding cervical cancer arising in bicornuate uterus. A 43-year-old Indian woman presented with complaint of bleeding per vaginum and white discharge for last 1 year. On examination, there was an ulceroproliferative lesion in the cervical region with free fornices. Per rectal examination did not reveal any parametrial involvement. Magnetic resonance imaging of the pelvis showed bicornuate uterus with growth in the cervix. Clinically, the patient was diagnosed as carcinoma cervix stage IB/IIA. Histopathology of the cervical biopsy was reported as moderately differentiated squamous cell carcinoma. The patient underwent radical hysterectomy, and the postoperative period was uneventful. Then she was referred to radiotherapy. After 1 month follow-up, she was healthy.
