5 year old, unmarried, Indonesian woman came to the emergency department Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital with shock condition. Initially assessed as septic condition, the patient was then diagnosed as diabetes insipidus (DI). It was concurrently found that the patient also had several sexual intercourse before and not until later that the patient diagnosed with stage IB cervical cancer. Cervical cancer (CC) is the third most common cancer in women worldwide and primarily affects young adult women, with consequences not only individually but also socially. DI is a rare disease that causes frequent urination that is not freqently related with CC. Concurrent incidence of DI with CC can only be seen in several case reports. It has not yet been established whether these two conditions are concurrent or having a cause-effect relationship. DI is not a common case, hence knowing its clinical sign and syptoms are very important. In fund limited setting in third world countries, the laboratory examination can be simplified by examining the osmolality of the serum and urine condition. These low level of serum can be very helpful in diagnosing DIwith treatment can be as simple as fluid restriction. Regarding the CC, radical trachelectomy can be done with surveilance must be done every 3-6 month for 2 years and every 6-12 month for 3-5 years with cytology.
