Abstract

Cloacogenic Carcinoma is a rare and highly malignant tumor arises from the transitional cloacogenic zone of anorectal junction. These tumors metastasise by direct invasion and via the lymphatic channels to the regional lymph nodes. Lymphography was utilized to diganose metastic cloa­cogenic carcinomas and in 3 patients positive nodes were found on lymphography. This is a preliminary report describing the findings of metastatic cloacogenic tumors on lymphography and the author recommends utilization of this diagnostic procedure in the work up of cloacogenic carcinoma.
