We report a case of congenital abnormality of uterus didelphys in a patient who developed invasive carcinoma of the cervix. She received radical radiotherapy by a combination of external beam pelvic radiotherapy and high dose rate brachytherapy by insertion of afterloading catheters into both uterine canals. A newly defined prescription point was used midway between the two catheters and 2 cm above the mean cervical os position. The classical point A was regarded as inappropriate in this patient with a rare condition. Acute toxicity was minor and the patient is tumour free with no significant normal tissue late effects after follow-up of nearly 3 years.
