Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma of the uterine cervix|
Kaul, Rashmi; Gupta, Neelam; Sharma, Jaishree & Gupta, Sourav
Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELC) of the uterine cervix is a rare variant of squamous cell carcinoma (SSC). It differs from the usual SSC of the cervix in its morphology and clinical behavior and shows a better prognosis than the more common SSC of the cervix. We report a case of LELC of the cervix, diagnosed on the basis of histopathology in a 42-year-old female who presented with a history of postcoital bleeding.
