|Abstract:||Small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the cervix is very rare and is usually associated with dismal prognosis if treated by conventional surgery and radiotherapy even in early stage disease. This tumor is characterized by early lymphatic and hematogenous spread. Only one successfully treated case of small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the cervix with dissemination to the pelvic nodes had been reported before in the literature. We are reporting a case of small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the cervix with multiple pelvic nodal metastases including the common iliac nodes, which had been successfully treated with a multimodal approach including radical hysterectomy, pelvic/para-aortic lymphadenectomy, and postoperative chemotherapy using cisplatin-etoposide combinations and pelvic irradiation.|
