Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma (sarcoma botyroides) of the cervix, which is rare, is described in a 16-yearold. The combined use of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery has markedly improved survival in those
with this condition. However, our patient did not benefit from this treatment modality due to late presentation and loss to follow-up.
