Abstract

Lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELC) of the uterine cervix is a rarely seen variant of squamous cell carcinoma It differs from the usual squamous cell carcinoma with its better prognosis, and different clinical behavior and morphology. Different association rates have been reported between LELC and Epstein-Barr virus and human papilloma virus in the Asian and Western countries; however; the relationship remains controversial. In order to make a contribution to the further studies on the etiopathogenesis of LELC, we, herein,present a 62-year-old Turkish female with T PLC of the uterine cervix, which is negative for Epstein-Barr virus but positive for human papillomavirus virus.
