Abstract

The cervix may be rarely involved by uncommon cervical malignancies or metastatic malignant tumors. Cervical malignancies include small cell carcinoma, malignant melanoma, carcinosarcoma, and metastatic tumors. Small cell carcinoma of cervix is uncommonly encountered in cervical smear. Unlike other areas cervical small cell carcinoma is associated with human papillomavirus (HPV) 18. Melanoma of cervix is very rare and cytologists rarely encounter malignant melanoma on cytology smear. Uncommonly various malignant tumors from different sites may metastasize in cervix. The common primary sites are ovary, fallopian tube, colon, and breast. The half of the extra uterine metastatic malignancies is of gynecological origin particularly from ovary and fallopian tubes.
