Primary choriocarcinoma of the uterine cervix is an extremely rare disease. The clinical diagnosis of cervical choriocarcinoma is difficult, because of its rarity and being non-specific abnormal vaginal bleeding the most common symptom. In the present report,the authors present a case of cervical choriocarcinoma, which was initially misdiagnosed as a cesarean section scar ectopic pregnancy.
Remission of cervical choriocarcinoma was accomplished with the combination of hysterectomy and chemotherapy.

Key words: cesarean section scar, choriocarcinoma, ectopic pregnancy
