A rare case of cervical alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma in a 45-year old female is presented. The removal of the tumour was performed in two stage-procedure, due to its large dimensions: first the bulk of the tumour was removed per vaginam, proceeding afterwards to a radical hysterectomy. Metastases were detected in pelvic lymph nodes. The patient was given postoperative radiotherapy, but a dissemination of the tumour was found at the termination of the treatment and the patent died 3.5 months after surgery.
