Cervical small cell carcinoma (SCC) is a rare disease, with a high degree of malignancy and a poor prognosis. Para-aortic lymph nodes (PALN) are frequent sites of recurrence after pelvic chemoradiotherapy. In the present study, we report the case of a 26-year-old female patient with cervical SCC who suffered for two times PALN relapses. Our research results have shown that PALN lesions can be effectively controlled with permanent radiation therapy. Prophylactic PALN radiotherapy may be an effective option for patients with cervical SCC who require radical pelvic radiation therapy.
