A case report is given of bilateral renal obstruction, uraemia and anaemia in a patient with carcinoma of the uterine cervix treated by Wertheim hysterectomy with bilateral tumour recurrence in the true pelvis. Combined therapeutic management – medical, urological and radiotherapeutic – brought about complete symptomatic improvement and clinical recovery of renal function. The significance of radiotherapy with ultra-hard photons under conditions of hyperbaric oxygen tension is stressed.
