Abstract

Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma of the cervix is a variant of squamous cell carcinoma. Of all cervical cancer it comprises about 0.7% cases. It differs from the usual squamous cell carcinoma of cervix in its clinical behaviour, morphology and has a better outcome. We report two cases of Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma of cervix associated with Human Papilloma Virus-16 in Indian women. They were staged as FIGO Ib1 and Ib2 respectively, and a radical hysterectomy was performed.
