The most common histological subtype of cervical cancer is squamous cell carcinoma, which is followed by adenocarcinoma, adenosquamous and small-cell/neuroendocrine carcinoma. The mesenchymal tumors of the uterine cervix are distinctly uncommon and heterogenous diseases. Cervical sarcomas are rare tumors that constitute less than 1% of all cervical malignancies. Although substantial progress has been achieved in the diagnosis and treatment of uterine sarcomas, cervical sarcomas are still not characterized well and standardized concepts for their management are lacking due to their rarity and histopathological diversity.
