Carcinoma of the cervix has been considered as a preventable disease. However, it continues to be a significant health problem worldwide and is the second most frequent cause of cancer death among women in developing countries. It rarely metastasizes to the supraclavicular group of lymph nodes during the initial presentation, and few cases have been reported in the literature. Here, we report a case of cervical carcinoma in a 40-year-female with unusual manifestation at the time of initial presentation. The patient was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix with supraclavicular lymph node metastatic FIGO Clinical Stage IVB and treated in the line of concurrent chemoradiotherapy followed by adjuvant chemotherapy. The patient is reported to be disease-free after 1 year of completion of therapy.
