Abstract

  Amoebiasis of the uterine cervix is an extremely rare entity and presentation as carcinoma cervix has only been reported once in the extensively searched English literature. It can clinically simulate cervical malignancy by virtue of surface papillomatous and overall ulcerated and necrotic appearance. We present a case of amoebic cervicitis in a 55-year old female which was suspected to be a squamous cell carcinoma until a punch biopsy disclosed a diagnosis of amoebic etiology thereby preventing unwarranted aggressive management
