The ''sister Joseph's nodule'' is an uncommon umbilical tumour, often associated with advanced intra-abdominal cancer and with very short prognosis. We report the long-term survival in 2 women with a solitary umbilical metastasis from locally advanced squamous carcinoma of the cervix, with no evidence of abdominal and pelvic recurrence and no lymph nodal metastases.
