Neuroendocrine tumour of the cervix: A case report and review of literature
Cervical neuroendocrine tumours are rare accounting for only 2% of cervical cancers. They pose a management challenge. We present a case of a 26-year old who presented with bleeding pervaginum three months post partum and a cervical mass on speculum examinations. Further examination and histology revealed an advanced Stage 3b, poorly differentiated tumour which was confirmed to be neuroendocrine in origin on immunohistochemistry. Unfortunately the patient succumbed to the illness one month after diagnosis.
