Abstract:   (550 Views)

Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is a rare type of sarcoma. Botryoid type is the most common. The peak incidence is the second decade. Cervical RMS is rare in adults. We reported two cases, A, 31 years old woman G1L1 referred to a gynecologist oncologist with abnormal vaginal bleeding. And pathology reported RMS. She received 8courses of VAC regimen for chemotherapy .3 weeks after the last course, she underwent conization, and a remnant of sarcoma was seen. A hysterectomy was done for her. She has been disease free for 12 month. Case 2 was a 25 years old nulliparous woman presenting with abnormal vaginal bleeding, vaginal discharge, and cervical polypoid grape like lesion. Pathology reported RMS. Conization was done. Chemotherapy with VAC regimen was done for 8 courses. She has been disease free after 9 years. These two cases showed that RMS can occur in rare places and older ages.
