Examination revealed a cervical polyp on the anterior lip of the cervix. She subsequently had polypectomy and histology including immunohistochemical stains confirmed Leiomyosarcoma of the uterine cervix. The patient underwent hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy with histological confirmation of a complete excision.
