This is the first report of a patient with cervical cancer who underwent surgical resection of a solitary brain metastasis eight years following diagnosis. This case is unique because of the indolent nature of the tumor and because the patient had resection of metastatic lung nodules three years earlier. In this particular case, the patient's survival was not prolonged, so craniotomy and resection cannot be recommended in this disease, even when there has been a prolonged disease progression-free interval. Palliative management should include steroids and radiation therapy.
