Metastatic squamous cell carcinoma in the pyloroduodenal region is uncommon. Cases have been reported where carcinoma of the lung has presented with metastasis to the duodenum. We present here the case of a 57-year-old lady who was found to have a metastasis in pyloroduodenal region while on treatment for carcinoma cervix. The patient developed features of intestinal obstruction and endoscopy showed a growth extending from pyloric antrum to first part of duodenum up to the junction of first and second part. A biopsy was taken from the duodenal area and it was reported as metastatic squamous cell carcinoma. This is one of the few reported cases of hematogenous visceral metastasis from carcinoma cervix. Since the disease was found to be advanced and her performance status was poor, she was provided best supportive care.
