AbstractIntroduction: Colorectal cancer is one of the most common digestive malignancies, with a high mortality and morbidity rate, with nonspecific symptoms in the early stages and with a diagnosis in the advanced stage most often. In a significant percentage there are cases in which tumors with invasion in the border organs and multiorgan resections are required. In women, the invasion frequently occurs in the vagina, uterus and bladder.Case report: We report the case of a 52-year-old woman, who presented in the Department of Surgery with the following complaints: fecaluria, pneumaturia, constipation and moderate abdominal pain, with onset of 4 months, in wich the patient neglected her symptoms. Following the investigations, a large tumor formation of sigmoid colon was diagnosed, with invasion in the uterus and bladder, with which it communicates through a 16mm fistula. The result of the biopsy was of low / moderate grade adenocarcinoma differentiated G2. Cystoscopy revealed bladder trigone invasion without being able to identify ureteral orifices, biopsy and urine cytology was also positive for cancer. The surgery was performed by a multidisciplinary team and a multivisceral resection was performed.Conclusions: Multiorgan resections require trained, experienced teams, and oncological pathology raises special issues when it comes to radical visa. The management of invasive colonic tumors in the border organs must be established preoperatively, in agreement with the patient, because it involves problems related to the quality of life and the potential for survival.
