Abstract: 

Dear Editor in Chief This short case presented below highlights the importance of Pathologists, whom are usually considered as bench side consultants, in diagnosing a case, which was not that unusual, but remained undiagnosed for almost 2 years due to lack of multidisciplinary approach by the referred clinicians.
A vaginal smear of a 40 year old female patient was received for evaluation with the history of lower abdominal pain and vaginal discharge since 2 years. Differential diagnosis of cervicitis/ vaginosis/ vaginal atrophy/ cervical cancer was being considered at this stage before proceeding for microscopy examination.
Microscopy revealed an adequate smear with no overt epithelial cell abnormality. However at places epithelial cells showed presence of clear round intracytoplasmic vacuoles with mild to moderate inflammation in background (Fig.1). Presence of these vacuoles with no other abnormality aroused suspicion of vaginitis secondary to Chlamydia trachomatis infection.
Possibility of human papilloma virus (HPV) infection was clearly ruled out due to lack of perinuclear clearing of cytoplasm and any dysplastic changes in epithelial cells.
