Brain metastases from endometrial carcinoma rarely involve the nervous system and are solitary in exceptional cases (<1% of cases). Two cases of solitary cerebral metastasis from endometrial carcinoma are described. Two patients, submitted to the therapeutic protocol established for endometrial carcinoma, underwent surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy for solitary cerebral metastasis after at average interval of 18 months. Average survival was 46 months and death was due to progression of the systemic disease. An examination of our cases and those described in the literature has shown that, although these metastasis do not respond well to therapeutic treatment, a better outcome may be achieved by combined treatment consisting of surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
