Lymphoepithelial carcinoma of the uterine cervix: Case report and literature review

Lymphoepithelial carcinoma of the cervix (CLEC) is a rare variant of squamous cell carcinoma not exceeding 0.7% of all cervical cancers. It’s most common in the nasopharynx. A similar tumor known as lymphoepithelial carcinoma is generally seen in the stomach, salivary gland, and lung cancers.

Their pathogeny is poorly understood and their treatment is not codified until now.

We present a rare case of CLEC diagnosed in a 34-year-old woman, and discuss the anatomo-clinical and histopathogenic aspects of this exceptional type of cervix tumor.
