The lymphoepithelial like carcinoma is a rare tumour of uterine cervix. Despite the rarity of this tumour, morphologically it resembles the nasopharyngeal tumour. It differs from the usual squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix in its morphology and clinical behaviour and shows a better prognosis than the more common squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix. We report a case of lymphoepithelial like carcinoma of the cervix, diagnosed on the basis of histopathology and immunohistochemistry-cytokeratin (CK) in a 39 year old female who presented with abnormal uterine bleeding.
