Abstract

Between 1970 and 1979, 103 women below 35 years of age with invasive cervical cancer were treated at the First Obstetrics and Gynaecology Clinic of the University of Milan. Nine patients were pregnant or less than 3 months postpartum. Estimated 10-year disease-free survival, determined by the life-table method, was 100% in stage 1A (37 patients), 79% in stage IB (45 patients), 67% in stage II (15 patients), 0% in stages III (5 patients) and IV (1 patient). Prognosis was also strongly associated with lymph-node involvement, 10-year actuarial survival decreasing from 93% in lymph-node-negative to 44% in lymph-node-positive patients (P
