Three different variants of biologically agressive cervical cancers, such as: basaloid carcinoma, glassy cell carcinoma and small cell endocrine carcinoma, have been reported. Hematoxylin and eosin, periodic acid-Schiff and immunohistochemical stains were used. The course of disease and aplication of treatment has been analyzed as well.
