We report the case of a 22-year old female presenting with an embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of the cervix that was successfully treated by surgery followed by adjuvant radiation therapy and chemotherapy. She subsequently developed radiation cystitis after 10 years of follow-up. She was successfully treated with cystoscopic fulguration. In this report, we discuss a review of management strategies for cervical rhabdomyosarcoma and also throw some light on incidence and management of radiation cystitis after pelvic radiotherapy. We discuss the dose independence of radiation cystitis, which can be seen after as low as 4500 cGy of pelvic radiation.
