Introduction: Cervical cancer remains the most common gynecological cancer among women in developing countries.
Objective: The objective was to analyze the clinical presentation and histopathological pattern of carcinoma cervix over a 3-year period.
Design: This was a retrospective analysis.
Results: The majority of the patients were between 40 and 50 years. Most of the patients presented at stage III. Squamous cell carcinoma was the most common histopathological pattern. Radiotherapy with concurrent chemotherapy was the modality of treatment.
Conclusion: The outcome significantly shows the inadequate screening program to detect preinvasive stage of carcinoma cervix.
