Neuroendocrine carcinomas of the uterine cervix are very rare cervical neoplasms. It has frequent distant metastasis at diagnosis and high recurrent rate against multimodality therapies such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. In 1997, four categories of endocrine tumors of uterine cervix were recommended by the Cancer Committee of the College of American Pathologists and the National Cancer Institute. It has been suggested that infection of human papillomavirus and molecular biologic abnormalities in genomic level are causes of this disease. Although a lot of studies about this disease concerning therapies and prognostic factors have been reported, there is no standard therapeutic regimens because of low incidence and difficulties of histologic diagnosis, so further studies about this issues are required. We report a case of large cell neuroendocrine uterine cervical carcinoma treated with chemotherapy followed by surgery.
Key Words: Cervical cancer, Large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma
