Neuroendocrine Small Cell Uterine Cervix Cancer in Pregnancy: Long-Term Survival Following Combined Therapy


A 22-year-old woman carrying twin gestations at 30 weeks presented with preterm labor and a prolapsing cervical mass. Following Cesarean section birth, she was treated with multiagent chemotherapy followed by pelvic radiotherapy for a Stage IIA small cell cancer of the uterine cervix. She is without evidence of disease 5.5 years after diagnosis and is the first reported long-term survivor of a small cell cervical carcinoma diagnosed during pregnancy.
