Neuroendocrine tumors comprise a broad family of tumors that arise from the diffuse neuroendocrine cell system. Small-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma cervix is a rare tumor, accounting for up to 2% of cervical carcinomas. These are highly aggressive tumors, characterized by early distant metastasis and worse prognosis compared to other histological types occurring in the cervix. Distant sites of recurrence including lung and bone are more common (28%) than local failure (13%). We report a case of a 60-year-old woman whose disease progressed during treatment with an eventual fatal outcome.
