From 1990 to 2003 have been admitted 105 patients with pelvic recurrence from rectal cancer. Fifty-nine patients have been selected and 25 patients underwent surgery. We evaluate the prognostic factors and the 3 years disease-free survival. The 60% of the patients after R0 resection and the 20% of the patients who underwent R1-R2 resection are alive. The evaluation of the prognostic factors allows early diagnosis of recurrence with a better long time survival.
