Abstract The occurrence of an inflammatory breast lesion and wide-spread venous thrombosis in a woman with metastatic adenocarcinoma of the endocervix is reported. Examination of biopsy specimens showed the inflammatory breast mass to be histologically consistent with metastasis from the endocervix. Recurrent venous thrombosis requiring large doses of heparin for control of the phlebitis was also a feature of this patient's illness. The disease was associated with elevation of serum CA 125 levels that did not parallel the patient's clinical course.
