Glassy cell carcinoma (GCC) is a rare clinical entity involving uterine cervix with aggressive course and relatively poor prognosis. The most common presentation is abnormal bleeding or discharge per vaginum of recent origin. Histologically it is diagnosed by characteristic "Glassy" cells. All the three modalities (i.e. surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy) have been tried in various clinical settings, showing different clinical outcome. The common consensus regarding diagnosis and optimal treatment modalities is yet to emerge. The case presented here not only represents a rare histopathological diagnosis, but also reemphasizes the importance of Her2 neu immunostains as a bad prognostic marker.
