RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the efficacy of 6-hydroxymethylacylfulvene in patients with stage IVB or recurrent cervical carcinoma. II. Determine the safety of this drug in this patient population.
OUTLINE: Patients receive 6-hydroxymethylacylfulvene IV over 5 minutes daily for 5 consecutive days. Treatment continues every 28 days in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 12-37 patients will be accrued for this study within 6-19 months.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX .

More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.
