Jeong, Choi, Lee, Choi, Lee, and Lee: A Case of Glassy Cell Carcinoam of the Uterine Cervix


Glassy cell carcinoma is an uncommon, aggressive type of adenosquamous carcinoma of the uterine cervix, which is considered to originate from the subcylindrical reserve cells of the cervix. Histologically glassy cell carcinoma is composed of nests of large cells with ground glass cytoplasm and large vesicular nuclei with prominent nucleoli. This infrequent pathologic subtype is an aggressive biologic tumor associated with a rapid clinical course and poor outcome with conventional treatment modalities in the majority of disease. We present a case of Glassy cell carcinoma of uterine cervix with brief review of literature.
