Malignant mixed mullerian tumors (MMMT) are infrequent and highly malignant tumors. MMMTs, emerging from the uterine cervix, are very rare and to the best of our knowledge, there are no specific symptoms for the diagnosis of MMMTs whose early diagnosis is challenging. Almost all of them are diagnosed with pathological tests and reports. A 52-year-old post-menopause woman was referred to us, who suffered from postmenopausal bleeding from four months earlier. Upon pelvic examination, the position of the biopsy was identified in the anterior lip of the cervix. In former fractional dilatation and curettage, we found a pathology report with MMMT in the anterior lip of cervix. We performed a radical hysterectomy type II. In the permanent pathological report, MMMTs stage IBI was established. The patient was followed by chemoradiation. After 20 months, examination showed no evidence of recurrence.
