Stroke is a disabling disease which increases the burden of already suffering cancer patients. Several mechanisms of stroke exist in cancer patients which includes - metastatic or non-metastatic such as coagulation disorders, infections or therapy related. Increased risk of ischaemic stroke has been validated for several cancers. However, there is scarce literature reported in carcinoma cervix patients. Review of literature suggests that stroke occurs more frequently in cancer patients than in the average population. We report an unusual case of a patient who presented with stroke but was later diagnosed as a case of carcinoma cervix.
