Dysphagia has a broad aetiology and so it is essential to identify the precise cause. Cervical cancer metastasis is distinctive in that it usually involves local lymph node invasion; however, approximately 1% of cases have mediastinal involvement, which can cause severe compressive symptoms in rare situations. To highlight an uncommon severe manifestation of cervical cancer relapse, we describe a case of dysphagia in a woman with a history of cervical cancer. After a thorough investigation that included endoscopy, endoscopy with ultrasound, an oesophagogram and fine needle aspiration, we eventually reached the diagnosis of mediastinal metastatic cervical cancer. Following interventions, the patient's condition gradually improved, both clinically and radiographically.
