Histologically, Large Cell Non-Keratinising Squamous Cell Carcinoma (LCNKSCC) constituted the majority of carcinoma cervix cases, i.e. 134 cases (88.15%). 3 (1.97%) cases of adenocarcinoma of cervix were diagnosed in the present study. Majority of cases of carcinoma cervix were in stage III, i.e. 64 cases (64%), followed by stage II in 24 cases (24%) and stage IB in 8 cases (8%). CONCLUSION Large Cell Non-Keratinising Squamous Cell Carcinoma (LCNKSCC) is the most common histological type of carcinoma cervix. A relatively large proportion of patients presented in stages IIIA and IIIB. There is a need to reinforce the early detection of carcinoma cervix and its precursor lesions, especially in developing countries.
