Genital rhabdomyomas are extremely rare benign tumors of skeletal muscle origin, majority of them being reported in vaginal location. Extensive literature search revealed only three such cases reported in cervix. We hereby report fourth such case of cervical rhabdomyoma in a 35-years-old female patient. The diagnosis was confirmed by histomorphology with desmin and myoD1 positivity on immunohistochemistry. Due to paucity of cases no definite treatment guidelines are available. Differentiation from identical and more common malignant counterpart which is rhabdomyosarcoma is essential to avoid unnecessary aggressive therapy.
