From March 1979 through December 1988, 232 previously untreated patients with invasive carcinoma of the uterine cervix stage IIB were treated at the Department of Therapeutic Radiology, Seoul National University Hospital. The patients studied were staged according to the FIGO recommendations and the majority of patients were treated with external beam whole pelvis radiation and intracavitary radiation. Pretreatment parameters, including physical examination findings, blood parameters, prior medical illnesses, histology and abdomino-pelvic CT findings were studied, employing univariate and multivariate analyses to identify the potentially significant prognostic factors on locoregional control, disease free survival and overall survival. Histology, extent of parametrial involvement on physical examination and paraaortic Iymph node metastasis on CT were found to have prognostic significance in the carcinoma of uterine cervix stage IIB.
