Russell body cervicitis presenting as endocervical polyp: a case report
Keywords:Abnormal uterine bleeding, Cervicitis, Plasma cells, CD 138 antigen
Russell body cervicitis has been rarely reported in the literature. Herein, we reported another case of this entity. A 42 years old female patient who presented with postcoital bleeding, a clinical diagnosis of cervical polyp was made which was subsequently biopsied. Histopathological diagnosis of Russell body cervicitis was given followed by positive immunoreactivity for CD138, Kappa and Lambda. Heightened awareness of the existence of this entity may result in reporting of similar cases, which may assist in concluding its pathogenesis and causative agent.
