The sarcoma botryoides of the cervix uteri occurs very rarely in fertile women.
Here is a case of a 35-year-old fertile woman, who developed a sarcoma botryoides of the cervix uteri. The diagnosis required clinical examination, ecography, NMR, CT scan and a pathological examination of the surgical sample. Radical surgery and chemotherapy was performed. The patients is still living after more than 1 year after treatment.
Although the combined modality approach has given, if not constant, acceptable outcomes, a larger investigation on all the cases of sarcoma botryoides of the cervix uteri is expected.
