Small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma
A neuroendocrine carcinoma composed of small malignant cells which histologically often resemble "oat cells". Clinically, this is often a rapidly growing cancer that spreads to distant sites early.
Cervical small cell carcinoma is rare. Squamous or glandular differentiation may be observed. The tumour is aggressive and has a tendency to rapid recurrence. Mortality is high
