Abstract  

Objective: By describing a case of vaginal foreign body misdiagnosed as cervical cancer in a female of reproductive age, gynecologists should be warned to be careful in the process of diagnosis and treatment. Materials and Methods: Retrospective review of the entire medical record of a female Tibetan patient who was misdiagnosed with cervical cancer. Results: The patient received hysteroscopy under general anesthesia. Two white plastic bottles for Yunnan Baiyao were found after separating the vaginal stenosis and after removing the vaginal foreign bodies, a smooth and complete cervix was found. Conclusion: This study suggests that gynecologists should be careful with physical examination, as they should ask patients more questions, and not limit their clinical thinking to common diseases, and thereby reducing misdiagnosis to the lowest possible.

Key words:  Vaginal foreign body      Misdiagnosis      Cervical cancer      Vaginal discharge
