Endocervical polyps constitute the most common new growths of the uterine cervix. They are most often found during the fourth to sixth decades and in multigravidas. The paucity of smooth muscles in the cervical stroma makes the leiomyomas uncommon in the cervix and accounts for less than 1% of all fibroids. Cervical leiomyomas or fibroids usually arise from the supravaginal portion of the cervix. Studies indicate that the prevalence of atypia, dysplasia, and malignancy in cervical polyps is none to very low. The occurrence of neoplastic change in the overlying mucosa of the leiomyomatous cervical polyp is extremely rare. There has been only a single case of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) arising on the mucosal surface of a cervical leiomyomatous polyp. We are presenting a case of SCC arising from the mucosal surface of the cervical leiomyomatous polyp.
