  • [Title] Diagnosis problems in a case of minimal deviation adenocarcinoma of the cervix.
  • We present the diagnostic problems in a case of minimal deviation adenocarcinoma of the cervix.
  • Histopathologic exam of the tumor, made on serial sections, revealed a dense and profound proliferation of the glandular structures that were lined by endocervical type epithelia with minimal cellular and nuclear atypia.
  • The aspect suggested the diagnosis of minimal deviation adenocarcinoma endocervical type; in order to confirm the diagnosis we immunohistochemical investigate the tumor for CEA, CA125, Ki67, ER and PR.
  • We can conclude that all these markers are useful in the diagnosis, excluding the benign endocervical lesions.

  • [Title] Expression of Ki-67 and squamous intraepithelial lesions are related with HPV in endocervical adenocarcinoma.
  • To estimate the association between human papillomavirus (HPV) status and the expression of p53, Ki-67 and bcl-2 in cases of endocervical adenocarcinoma, and the relation with squamous intraepithelial lesions (SIL) and age, 229 cases were selected, treated between 1995 and 2003 in the Hospital Nossa Senhora da Conceiçao.
  • The joint occurrence of endocervical adenocarcinoma and SIL were estimated too.
  • The presence of HPV, especially type 18 in endocervical adenocarcinoma suggests that this agent can be an important cofactor in the development and progression of glandular neoplasms of the uterine cervix.
  • The joint occurrence of endocervical adenocarcinoma and SIL may support this hypothesis.
  • HPV may promote an increased proliferation index in endocervical adenocarcinoma, shown by the expression of Ki-67.

  • [Title] Absence of high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) detection in endocervical adenocarcinoma with gastric morphology and phenotype.
  • A subset of endocervical-type mucinous adenocarcinomas (ACs) of the uterine cervix exhibit a gastric phenotype and morphology, as reported in cases of minimal deviation AC in which the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) has been rarely detected.
  • To investigate the HPV-independent pathway of carcinogenesis in cases of gastric-type AC, we investigated the common high-risk HPV (hr-HPV) status in 52 nonsquamous cell carcinomas, using a PCR-based typing method and immunohistochemistry of p16INK4a (a cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor that is overexpressed in both cancerous and precancerous cervical tissue, making it an ideal biomarker for cervical cancer cases).
  • Using novel morphological criteria, seven of 52 (13.5%) carcinomas were designated as gastric-type ACs, all of which were negative for both hr-HPV DNA and p16INK4a.
  • Nongastric-type ACs were frequently positive for both hr-HPV DNA (90%, 28/31) and p16INK4a (94%, 29/31) with adenosquamous and neuroendocrine carcinomas demonstrating the presence of hr-HPV DNA in 86% (6/7) and 83% (5/6) of cases, respectively.
  • Our data suggests that gastric-type AC appears to represent an oncogenic hr-HPV-independent neoplasm and therefore is a potential pitfall of HPV DNA testing and vaccination.

  • [Title] Decreasing incidence of cervical adenocarcinoma in Ontario: is this related to improved endocervical Pap test sampling?
  • These reductions have been specific to squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and have not included adenocarcinoma (AC).
  • The intent of this article is to examine trends in cervical adenocarcinoma incidence in Ontario over a 20-year period in relation to screening practices.
  • Age-standardized incidence rates were calculated overall, by broad age groups and by morphological type (SCC and AC).
  • From the mid- to late-1990s, instructions were distributed to clinicians, reinforcing the importance of dual specimen collection (i.e., using both spatula and endocervical brush).

  • [Title] [Role of HPV DNA detection and p16(INK4A) protein expression in diagnosis of endocervical adenocarcinoma].
  • OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the significance of p16(INK4A) protein expression and positivity for HPV DNA in distinguishing between endocervical and endometrial adenocarcinoma.
  • METHODS: Expression of p16(INK4A) protein in 30 cases of endocervical adenocarcinoma and 10 cases of endometrial adenocarcinoma was assessed by immunohistochemistry.
  • In-situ hybridization for human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA was also performed in 20 cases of endocervical adenocarcinoma and 10 cases of endometrial adenocarcinoma.
  • RESULTS: The positive rate for p16(INK4A) in endocervical adenocarcinoma was 70% (21/30), as compared with 30% (3/10) in endometrial adenocarcinoma.
  • The tumor cells in endocervical adenocarcinoma showed diffuse and strong expression of p16(INK4A) protein with both cytoplasmic and nuclear staining.
  • In contrast, the endometrial adenocarcinoma cells showed patchy and weak expression of p16(INK4A).
  • On the other hand, HPV DNA (type 16 or 18) was detected by in-situ hybridization in 9 (45%) of the 20 cases of endocervical adenocarcinoma and none of the 10 cases of endometrial adenocarcinoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The expression of p16(INK4A) protein is significantly higher in endocervical adenocarcinoma than in endometrial adenocarcinoma.
  • This expression pattern can serve as a useful immunohistochemical marker in the differential diagnosis. p16(INK4A) protein immunohistochemistry appears to be more sensitive than HPV DNA testing in distinguishing between endocervical and endometrial adenocarcinoma, especially in biopsy or curettage specimens.

6. Hirschowitz L, Sen C, Murdoch J: Primary endometrioid adenocarcinoma of the cervix with widespread squamous metaplasia--a potential diagnostic pitfall. Diagn Pathol; 2007;2:40

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Primary endometrioid adenocarcinoma of the cervix with widespread squamous metaplasia--a potential diagnostic pitfall.
  • BACKGROUND: Uterine or endocervical biopsies that contain endometrioid adenocarcinoma with widespread squamous metaplasia are usually of endometrial origin.
  • The presence of squamous metaplasia is said to be helpful in distinguishing endocervical from endometrial adenocarcinomas in small biopsy samples.
  • Biopsy of a friable lesion in the proximal endocervical canal revealed an endocervical adenocarcinoma of endometrioid type with widespread squamous metaplasia.
  • The latter feature initially raised the possible diagnosis of a primary endometrial adenocarcinoma.
  • However, immunohistochemical marker studies indicated a diagnosis of primary endocervical adenocarcinoma of endometrioid type and this was confirmed at hysterectomy.
  • CONCLUSION: Squamous differentiation is not well documented in endocervical adenocarcinomas of endometrioid type and, when widespread, may represent a diagnostic pitfall for pathologists.
  • Interpretation of small biopsies from the endocervical canal on the basis of morphology alone may lead to misdiagnosis and inappropriate surgical management.

International Agency for Research on Cancer - Screening Group. diagnostics - A practical manual on visual screening for cervical neoplasia .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] PAX2 distinguishes benign mesonephric and mullerian glandular lesions of the cervix from endocervical adenocarcinoma, including minimal deviation adenocarcinoma.
  • The differential diagnosis of exuberant mesonephric hyperplasia includes minimal deviation adenocarcinoma of the cervix, a tumor with deceptively bland morphology for which no reliable diagnostic biomarkers currently exist.
  • We hypothesized that PAX2 may also be expressed in mesonephric lesions of the cervix and may distinguish mesonephric hyperplasia from minimal deviation adenocarcinoma of the cervix.
  • We demonstrated that PAX2 was strongly and diffusely expressed in mesonephric remnants (6 of 6) and in mesonephric hyperplasia (18 of 18); however, no expression was noted in mesonephric adenocarcinoma (0 of 1).
  • PAX2 was expressed in normal endocervical glands (including tunnel clusters and Nabothian cysts) (86 of 86), lobular endocervical glandular hyperplasia (5 of 5), tubal/tuboendometrioid metaplasia (8 of 8), and cervical endometriosis (13 of 14).
  • In contrast, only 2 cases of endocervical adenocarcinoma were positive for PAX2 [invasive adenocarcinoma of the minimal deviation type (0 of 5), usual type (1 of 22), and endometrioid type (1 of 1)].
  • Adjacent adenocarcinoma in situ, as well as cases of pure adenocarcinoma in situ (0 of 6), were also PAX2 negative.
  • PAX2 expression in the 2 positive endocervical adenocarcinomas was patchy and weak.
  • These results suggest that PAX2 immunoreactivity may be useful to (1) distinguish mesonephric hyperplasia from minimal deviation adenocarcinoma, (2) to distinguish lobular endocervical glandular hyperplasia from minimal deviation adenocarcinoma, and (3) to distinguish endocervical tubal metaplasia or cervical endometriosis from endocervical adenocarcinoma in situ.

  • [Title] The relationship of glands to thick-wall blood vessels as a marker of invasion in endocervical adenocarcinoma.
  • The recognition of early invasion in endocervical adenocarcinomas can be difficult.
  • We evaluated the proximity of endocervical glands and their pattern of infiltration in relation to thick-wall blood vessels as potential markers of invasion in a series of invasive endocervical adenocarcinomas removed by cone biopsy or hysterectomy.
  • Routinely stained slides were examined from 50 invasive endocervical adenocarcinomas (37 of usual type and 13 of minimal deviation type), 26 noninvasive lesions (14 cases of adenocarcinoma in situ, 7 cases of hyperplasia, 4 cases of tunnel clusters, 1 adenomyoma), and 20 normal cervices, including 7 with deep nabothian cysts.
  • In conclusion, close proximity of glands to thick-wall blood vessels (distance from the closest gland to a thick-wall vessel less than or equal to the thickness of the vessel wall) seems to be a useful feature in the diagnosis of invasive endocervical adenocarcinoma.

  • An immunohistochemical (IHC) study has been conducted on 34 cases of untreated endocervical adenocarcinomas collected among three institutions (Ospedale S.
  • Endocervical adenocarcinomas as a group were uniformly expressing p16INK4a except for two cases, and all lesions displayed downregulation of the cadherin-catenin complex, without demonstrating statistically significant differences among the different histotypes.
  • The lack of nuclear accumulation of beta-catenin found in this group of lesions probably implies that no alteration of the beta-catenin/Wnt metabolic pathway is present in endocervical adenocarcinoma, as opposed to what is found in the literature for squamous carcinoma of the cervix.
  • The diffuse expression of p16INK4a protein in this group of neoplasms stresses the important role of high-risk human papillomavirus infection in neoplastic causation possibly via the viral E7-mediated inactivation of pRB tumor-suppressor protein and also underlines the useful role of p16INK4a immunostaining in the diagnostic algorithm of endocervical adenocarcinomas.
  • In consideration of these findings, investigation of downstream beta-catenin genes c-myc and cyclin D1 is sought as possibly contributive in the molecular pathogenesis of endocervical adenocarcinoma.

  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the hysterectomy specimen findings in the patients who underwent fractional curettage (F&C) with presence of adenocarcinoma in both endocervical and endometrial specimens.
  • MATERIAL AND METHOD: Forty-one patients who had adenocarcinoma in both endocervical and endometrial specimens from F&C and underwent subsequent hysterectomy for surgical staging without pre-operative radiotherapy or chemotherapy at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital between 1999 and 2007 were evaluated Histologic slides from both F&C and hysterectomy specimens were reviewed and assessed All cases of endometrial adenocarcinoma with cervical involvement (stage 2) in hysterectomy specimens were also assessed and compared to the results in F&C specimens.
  • RESULTS: Fifteen patients (36.6%) with both positive endocervical and endometrial specimens from F&C were diagnosed as endometrial adenocarcinoma within uterine cavity with lower uterine segment involvement.
  • In the 35 cases with endometrial carcinoma stage 2, 60% had adenocarcinoma in both endocervical and endometrial specimens from F&C.
  • CONCLUSION: In the patients who had adenocarcinoma in both endocervical and endometrial specimens from fractional curettage, the most common final pathological diagnosis from hysterectomy specimens was endometrial adenocarcinoma within uterine cavity with lower uterine segment involvement.
  • Therefore, only 60% of endometrial carcinoma stage 2 revealed positive adenocarcinoma in both endocervical and endometrial specimens from fractional curettage.

  • Endocervical adenocarcinoma is an uncommon malignancy that is composed of multiple subtypes and accounts for approximately 15% of all cervical cancers.
  • In this article, we describe the cytomorphology and differential diagnosis of an AJCC clinical stage IIIb, FIGO IB2 endocervical adenocarcinoma in a 17-year-old woman in a ThinPrep Pap test.The patient was a 17-year-old G0P0 white woman with no significant past medical history and no prior history of cervical dysplasia.
  • A sample was sent to cytology that was interpreted as atypical endocervical cells, favor neoplasia.
  • A subsequent cervical biopsy was diagnosed as endocervical adenocarcinoma with villoglandular features and ultimately, a hysterectomy with lymph node dissection was performed.
  • The final diagnosis was endocervical adenocarcinoma with metastasis to three pelvic lymph nodes.The cytomorphology of endocervical adenocarcinoma on ThinPrep Pap test is similar to that described for conventionally-processed Pap smears.
  • On a cytology sample, it is advisable to state atypical endocervical cells, adenocarcinoma in situ, or endocervical adenocarcinoma without providing a specific subtype even if there is a predominance of features for a particular subtype.

  • Herein is reported a case of primary vaginal mucinous adenocarcinoma with an interesting mucin profile, presumably arising from a lesion of adenosis in a patient without in utero exposure to diethylstilbesterol (DES).
  • The histological features of the vaginal intramural tumor found in this patient resembled those of mucinous adenocarcinoma of the endocervical type.
  • Therefore, it was necessary to determine whether or not the tumor was metastatic from an occult cervical adenocarcinoma.
  • However, the adenocarcinoma cells of the present case did not contain sulfomucin at all, being different from most mucinous adenocarcinoma cells of the endocervical type.
  • Moreover, there were foci of adenosis adjacent to the adenocarcinoma foci, which also did not contain sulfomucin.
  • These findings indicate that the mucinous adenocarcinoma arose from vaginal adenosis.

  • [Title] Intestinal type and endocervical-like ovarian mucinous neoplasms are immunophenotypically distinct entities.
  • Ovarian mucinous neoplasm (OMN) is traditionally classified as either intestinal type or endocervical-like subtypes.
  • In this study, we investigated 14 intestinal type OMNs (borderline and adenocarcinoma) and 12 endocervical-like OMNs (borderline and adenocarcinoma) for their expression of PDX-1, CDX-2, CA-125, CK7, CK20, WT-1, D2-40, and TTF-1.
  • The intestinal type OMNs were positive for PDX-1 (100%), CK7 (100%), CK20 (100%), CDX-2 (29%), whereas were negative for CA-125.
  • The endocervical-like OMNs were positive for CA-125 (100%) and CK7 (100%), whereas were negative for CK20, PDX-1, and CDX-2.
  • All of the intestinal type and endocervical-like OMNs as well as metastatic colorectal adenocarcinomas were negative for WT-1, D2-40, and TTF-1.
  • Our results demonstrated that the intestinal type and endocervical-like OMNs are immunophenotypically distinct entities.
  • The 2 subtypes can be separated from metastatic colorectal adenocarcinoma by the different immunohistochemical profile of PDX-1, CA-125, CK7, CK20, and CDX-2.
  • In the work-up of mucinous adenocarcinoma in the ovary or abdominal cavity, caution should be exercised in interpreting the possible primary site on the basis of the immunohistochemical profiles.

  • [Title] Synchronous and metachronous endocervical and ovarian neoplasms: evidence supporting interpretation of the ovarian neoplasms as metastatic endocervical adenocarcinomas simulating primary ovarian surface epithelial neoplasms.
  • The vast majority of endocervical adenocarcinomas are high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV)-related neoplasms, characterized by p16 expression and frequent loss of hormone receptor expression, which infrequently metastasize to the ovaries.
  • We report 10 cases of endocervical adenocarcinomas with ovarian metastases in which the ovarian tumors simulated primary ovarian surface epithelial neoplasms.
  • The ovarian metastases presented concurrently with the primary endocervical tumors in 5 cases, subsequent to the endocervical tumors in 3 cases, and prior to diagnosis of the endocervical tumors in 2 cases.
  • In all cases, the ovarian tumors were initially diagnosed as or thought to represent independent primary ovarian surface epithelial tumors (atypical proliferative [borderline] tumors or well-differentiated carcinomas of endometrioid or mucinous type).
  • The endocervical tumors ranged in size from microscopic foci to 3 cm, with depth of invasion ranging from 0.2 to 1.5 cm; in 2 cases, the invasive foci qualified as microinvasive according to Federation Internationale de Gynecologie et d'Obstetrique staging criteria for cervical carcinoma.
  • Adenocarcinoma in situ was identified in all tumors.
  • In all cases, the paired endocervical and ovarian tumors contained identical HPV types.
  • Two of the minimally invasive endocervical tumors were initially interpreted as adenocarcinoma in situ and not recognized as unequivocally invasive even when evaluated in conjunction with the histologically identical ovarian tumors.
  • Endocervical adenocarcinomas, including some qualifying as microinvasive, can metastasize to the ovaries and simulate primary ovarian surface epithelial neoplasms.
  • The presence of HPV DNA in these ovarian tumors confirms that they are metastatic endocervical adenocarcinomas.

  • Human papilloma virus (HPV) infection is considered one of the main factors involved in the pathogenesis of endocervical adenocarcinoma.
  • However, the cellular location of HPV in this type of tumor is controversial.
  • We have developed a method to determine the presence of HPV type 16 in endocervical cancer cells using laser capture microdissection followed by DNA extraction and qualitative polymerase chain reaction.
  • Our results show that HPV type 16 is present in endocervical adenocarcinoma cells.

  • [Title] Is lobular endocervical glandular hyperplasia a cancerous precursor of minimal deviation adenocarcinoma?: a comparative molecular-genetic and immunohistochemical study.
  • Although lobular endocervical glandular hyperplasia (LEGH) was originally described as a distinct hyperplastic glandular lesion of the uterine cervix, recent studies have raised a question that LEGH may be a cancerous precursor of minimal deviation adenocarcinoma (MDA) and other mucinous adenocarcinomas (MACs) of the uterine cervix.
  • In the present study, we studied LEGH, MDA, and MAC by using molecular-genetic and immunohistochemical methods for chromosomal imbalance, microsatellite instability, human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, and gastric pyloric-type mucin secretion to clarify their relationship.

  • 3 women with only mild changes in cervical smears were later found to be suffering from cervical adenocarcinoma.
  • After 3 colposcopic examinations with biopsies and 2 loop electrosurgical excision procedures of the cervix which showed no histological signs of malignancy, diagnostic conization revealed an adenocarcinoma of the endocervix.
  • Adenocarcinoma was diagnosed after conization.
  • A severe abnormal smear with glandular atypia was followed by colposcopical biopsies and conization, which revealed an endocervical adenocarcinoma.
  • Adenocarcinoma is a rare type of cervical cancer: III cases out of 584 patients with cervical cancer in 2003 in the Netherlands.
  • Screening may be enhanced by combining cytology with testing for high-risk HPV types, notably type 18.
  • If cervical cytology shows persistent atypical glandular cells with no conclusive histological result, then due to the endocervical localisation of the lesions adenocarcinoma can only be excluded by conization.

  • [Title] Diffuse laminar endocervical glandular hyperplasia: a case report.
  • BACKGROUND: Diffuse laminar endocervical glandular hyperplasia is extremely rare with only 14 cases reported in the literature.
  • Diffuse laminar endocervical glandular hyperplasia is a benign lesion that is easily confused with malignancy.
  • Colposcopic-directed cervical biopsies were diagnosed as adenocarcinoma, suggestive of minimal deviation adenocarcinoma.
  • Final pathology revealed diffuse laminar endocervical glandular hyperplasia.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Diffuse laminar endocervical glandular hyperplasia is an uncommon histological type of pseudoneoplastic glandular lesions that may be found in the cervix, and this entity should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a potentially malignant endocervical glandular lesion.

  • [Title] Reproducible and clinically meaningful differential diagnosis is possible between lobular endocervical glandular hyperplasia and 'adenoma malignum' based on common histopathological criteria.
  • The aim of the present study was to determine if the differential diagnosis between lobular endocervical glandular hyperplasia (LEGH) and minimal deviation adenocarcinoma (MDA), or 'adenoma malignum', is reproducible when clear criteria for these two lesions are given.
  • A total of 44 proliferative endocervical glandular lesions were collected, for which differential diagnosis from MDA was considered to be necessary.
  • Seven observers independently classified these 44 lesions into LEGH, LEGH with adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS), MDA, or common cervical adenocarcinoma, according to the following criteria: LEGH was non-invasive proliferation of endocervical glandular cells without any obvious adenocarcinoma component.
  • MDA was very well-differentiated endocervical-type mucinous adenocarcinoma composed mostly of LEGH-looking glands but containing the component of obviously invasive adenocarcinoma.
  • The level increased to almost perfect (kappa = 0.928) between the group of non-invasive lesions consisting of LEGH and LEGH with AIS and the other group of invasive lesions comprising MDA and common adenocarcinoma.

  • BACKGROUND: Benign endocervical-type mucinous adenomyoma arising in the uterine corpus is a rare entity.
  • We report a case of intraepithelial mucinous adenocarcinoma arising in an endocervical-type mucinous adenomyoma of the uterine corpus in a previously healthy woman.
  • Endometrial curettage showed multiple polypoid tissue fragments, each composed of glands lined with tall columnar endocervical-type mucinous epithelium lying within a background of endometrial-type stroma and smooth muscle fibers.
  • The mucinous glandular epithelium showed a spectrum of architectural and cytologic changes ranging from benign to severe atypia and occasional back-to-back cribriform glands, consistent with adenocarcinoma.
  • A diagnosis was made of intraepithelial adenocarcinoma arising in a mucinous adenomyoma in the uterine corpus.
  • CONCLUSION: Endocervical-type mucinous adenomyoma, although previously reported as a benign entity, may contain areas of adenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Conservative treatment of stage IA1 adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix with a long-term follow-up.
  • OBJECTIVES: The adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix tends to arise in women of childbearing age.
  • Conservative treatment by conization is an alternative to a hysterectomy that allows future pregnancy; however, much less is known about the management of adenocarcinoma because of its rarity and relatively short time frame of follow-up.
  • METHODS: All patients diagnosed to have FIGO (International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics) stage IA1 cervical adenocarcinoma between 1990 and 2004 with more than 5 years' follow-up at 2 institutions were reviewed.
  • All tumors were endocervical-type adenocarcinoma, and all tumors were grade 1.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although further studies on the management of microinvasive cervical adenocarcinoma are desirable, conization seems to be acceptable treatment modality for patients with stage IA1 cervical adenocarcinoma who desire to preserve their fertility.

  • [Title] Ovarian atypical proliferative (borderline) mucinous tumors: gastrointestinal and seromucinous (endocervical-like) types are immunophenotypically distinctive.
  • Immunohistochemical studies were performed to compare the expression patterns of cytokeratins 7 and 20 (CK7, CK 20), estrogen and progesterone receptors (ER, PR), CA-125, mesothelin, and WT-1 in 28 tumors of gastrointestinal type and 12 tumors of seromucinous type.
  • Both gastrointestinal and seromucinous type tumors had a high frequency of CK7 expression (93% and 100%, respectively).
  • The gastrointestinal type tumors were characterized by frequent expression of CK20 (86%) and CDX2 (39%), infrequent expression of CA-125 (11%) and mesothelin (7%), and lack of expression of ER, PR, and WT-1.
  • In contrast, the seromucinous type tumors were characterized by frequent expression of ER (100%), PR (67%), CA-125 (92%), and mesothelin (83%), infrequent expression of WT-1 (8%), and lack of expression of CK20 and CDX2.
  • The former are characterized by expression of markers of gastrointestinal-type differentiation (CK20 and CDX2), whereas the latter are characterized by expression of "müllerian-type" markers (ER, PR, CA-125, and mesothelin).
  • Expression of the latter markers in the seromucinous tumors, which also are expressed in pure serous tumors, and lack of expression of gastrointestinal-type markers, combined with the clinicopathologic features these tumors share with pure serous tumors, support the concept that this subtype is more closely related to serous than gastrointestinal type mucinous tumors and justify the designation "seromucinous.

  • [Title] Intestinal-type cervical adenocarcinoma in situ and adenocarcinoma exhibit a partial enteric immunophenotype with consistent expression of CDX2.
  • Most cases of cervical adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS) and adenocarcinoma are of the usual or endocervical type.
  • However, intestinal types of AIS and adenocarcinoma exist.
  • With an intestinal-type adenocarcinoma in the cervix, the question may arise as to whether one is dealing with a primary cervical neoplasm or direct or secondary spread from an intestinal adenocarcinoma.
  • In organs such as the ovary, urinary bladder, esophagus, and gallbladder, intestinal-type glandular epithelium often expresses enteric markers, but this has hardly been studied in the cervix.
  • The purpose of this study was to investigate whether intestinal-type AIS and adenocarcinoma in the cervix express enteric markers and to ascertain whether these antibodies are of value in the distinction from a metastatic intestinal adenocarcinoma.
  • We compared the immunophenotype of these lesions with that of usual-type AIS and adenocarcinomain the cervix.
  • Cases included were AIS of usual type (n = 6), primary cervical adenocarcinoma of usual type (n = 6), AIS of intestinal type (n = 21), primary cervical adenocarcinoma of intestinal type (n = 3), primary cervical adenocarcinoma with signet ring cells (n = 2), and colorectal adenocarcinoma involving the cervix (n = 5).
  • Usual-type AIS was always diffusely CK7 positive, typically diffusely CEA and p16 positive, and always CK20 negative.
  • Intestinal-type AIS was diffusely CK7 positive (all cases) and typically CK20 negative and diffusely CEA and p16 positive.
  • In addition, usual-type AIS adjacent to intestinal type was CDX2 positive in 13 of 21 cases.
  • The 3 cases of primary cervical intestinal-type adenocarcinoma were diffusely CK7 positive, focally or diffusely positive with CK20 and CDX2, and focally positive with CEA.
  • Intestinal types of cervical AIS and adenocarcinoma exhibit a partial enteric immunophenotype, usually with diffuse expression of CDX2 and, in some cases, staining with CK20.
  • Although there is immunophenotypic overlap, focal staining with CK20 together with diffuse CK7 and sometimes p16 positivity helps to distinguish intestinal types of cervical adenocarcinoma from involvement by a colorectal adenocarcinoma; CEA and CDX2 are of no value in this regard.
  • CDX2 positivity in usual-type AIS adjacent to intestinal type and in occasional cases of pure usual-type AIS may be a reflection of early intestinal differentiation before this is morphologically apparent.
  • Using a set of cases of AIS diagnosed in a single institution over a 7-year period (77 usual type; 13 intestinal type), intestinal type was more likely to be associated with early invasive adenocarcinoma than usual type (31% vs 17%), suggesting that intestinal differentiation may be a risk factor for invasion in premalignant cervical glandular lesions.

  • [Title] Cervical adenocarcinoma resembling breast lobular carcinoma: a hitherto Undescribed Variant of Primary Cervical Adenocarcinoma.
  • Most cervical adenocarcinomas are of the so-called usual or endocervical type, and consist entirely or predominantly of glandular formations.
  • We describe 3 cases of an unusual morphologic variant of cervical adenocarcinoma largely composed of bland epithelial cells, with occasional intracytoplasmic lumina, arranged in a variety of architectural patterns, including diffuse, small glandular, insular, trabecular, and Indian file arrangements.
  • In all cases, there was a minor superficial component of well-differentiated adenocarcinoma, suggesting that the component that resembled breast lobular carcinoma, arose from the differentiated neoplasm.
  • All cases were diffusely p16-positive, and 2 that underwent human papillomavirus testing contained high-risk oncogenic human papillomavirus, type 16 and 18 in 1 case each.
  • In all cases, there was loss of e-cadherin membranous immunoreactivity in the areas resembling breast lobular carcinoma, a similar pattern of staining to that seen in the latter neoplasm and possibly accounting for the morphologic features.
  • In reporting these cases, we highlight an unusual morphologic variant of cervical adenocarcinoma closely resembling breast lobular carcinoma and which may have an aggressive behavior.

  • Furthermore, the focal endometrial irregularity at the left uterine cornus turned out to be a well differentiated endometrial carcinoma of the endometrioid type with <1/3 myometrial invasion.
  • The pale infiltrative lesion in the cervix also turned out to be an adenocarcinoma of the endocervical type with deep stromal invasion and areas of diffuse glandular dysplasia and in-situ glandular neoplasia at the periphery.
  • Besides, several sections from the left fallopian tube uncovered diffuse dysplasia in the lining epithelium and a focus of adenocarcinoma with papillary and cribriform pattern.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] The two faces of cervical adenocarcinoma in situ.
  • In order of frequency, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), combined adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS)/CIN lesions, and solitary AIS are the most prevalent premalignant lesions of the uterine cervix.
  • As the morphologic distinction of these subtypes is not always straightforward, we performed an immunophenotyping analysis to establish distinguishing profiles for each of these squamous and glandular progenitor lesions of cervical carcinoma.
  • We conclude that 2 phenotypically distinct types of AIS can be identified, that is, AIS with a reserve cell marker phenotype and AIS with an endocervical glandular phenotype.
  • These observations support the view that reserve cells are capable of bidirectional premalignant transformation, that is, into CIN and reserve cell-type AIS, as well as combined AIS/CIN.
  • The endocervical type of AIS is probably a result of the unidirectional transformation of progenitor cells within the glandular cell compartment.

  • [Title] Distribution of human papillomavirus types in different histological subtypes of cervical adenocarcinoma.
  • Little information is available regarding distribution of HPV types in different histological subtypes of adenocarcinoma (AC).
  • Thus, in this study we examined the frequency of high-risk (hr) HPV types in AC, adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS) and adenosquamous carcinoma (ADSQ).
  • A total of 102 cases of primary cervical adenocarcinoma (26 AIS and 76 invasive AC) obtained from pathology files from 1995-2006 were histologically subtyped.
  • Our results demonstrated that endocervical type occupied the major subtype of AC (22/66) followed by ADSQ (17/66) where as in the group of AIS endocervical type (12/23) was followed by intestinal type of AIS (7/23).
  • We found HPV 18 type to be the most predominant type in AIS (11/21) and AC (17/60) followed by HPVof undeternmined type in AIS (3/21) and HPV 16 in AC (9/60) as the sole viral type.
  • HPV 18 was most frequently detected type in all histological subtypes of AIS and AC.
  • The most prevalent HPV type in ADSQ was HPV-16 followed by HPV 33 as single type.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Ten of the 15 (67%) endometrioid tumors had positive nuclear staining, compared with 7 of the 33 (21%) endocervical "usual-type" carcinomas, and 7 of the 33 (21%) remaining subtypes (adenosquamous, glassy cell, clear cell, serous, villoglandular, enteric).
  • The frequency of nuclear staining for the endometrioid subtype was significantly different compared with that for the endocervical and other subtypes (P=0.003).
  • Our results indicate that cervical adenocarcinomas can show nuclear immunopositivity for CDX2 even in the absence of overt morphologic features of colorectal differentiation.
  • The frequency and pattern of CDX2 staining in the more common histologic subtypes of cervical adenocarcinoma (endocervical usual-type and endometrioid) is parallel to that which is seen for adenocarcinomas of the upper gastrointestinal tract and pancreaticobiliary system.

  • [Title] Gastric morphology and immunophenotype predict poor outcome in mucinous adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix.
  • Endocervical-type mucinous adenocarcinoma (ECA) of the uterine cervix is defined as a tumor composed of cells resembling those of the endocervical glands, but recent studies have demonstrated that a minority of ECAs displays a gastric immunophenotype.
  • Fifty-three cases of mucinous adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix (37 FIGO stage IB, 4 stage IIA, and 12 stage IIB) were reviewed and reevaluated using a newly established morphologic criteria for distinguishing gastric type adenocarcinoma, which was defined as a tumor showing clear and/or pale eosinophilic and voluminous cytoplasm, with distinct cell borders.
  • Following the current World Health Organization scheme (2003), 47 tumors (89%) were classified as ECA, 1 (2%) as intestinal type, 1 (2%) as mixed endocervical and intestinal type, and 4 (8%) as minimal deviation adenocarcinoma.
  • Twelve of 47 (26%) ECAs and all 4 minimal deviation adenocarcinomas, reclassified as gastric type using the novel criteria, were frequently positive for HIK1083 with a rate of 75% (12/16), whereas only 11% (4/37) of nongastric tumors were positive.
  • There was no significant difference in MUC6 reactivity between gastric and nongastric type tumors (31%, 5/16 vs. 16%, 6/37; P=0.4).
  • Patients with gastric-type adenocarcinomas had a significantly decreased 5-year disease-specific survival rate (30 vs. 77%; P<0.0001), and the gastric type morphology was related to a significant risk for disease recurrence compared with the nongastric type (P=0.001; HR, 4.5; 95% confidence interval, 1.42-14.2).
  • Mucinous adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix with gastric immunophenotype can be a distinct morphologic variant showing an aggressive clinical course.

  • To determine the prevalence of goblet cell metaplasia in endocervical and endometrial adenocarcinomas by histochemial staining and to investigate the most sensitive histochemical staining method to detect this metaplasia, a total of 90 tissue blocks representing 30 non-neoplastic cervix, 30 non-neoplastic endometrium, 30 endocervical and endometrial adenocarcinoma cases were obtained for histochemical staining with Toluidine Blue (TB), Methylene Blue (MB), Mucicarmine (MUC), Periodic Acid Schiff before and after Diastase digestion (PAS, PAS-D), Alcian Blue pH 2.5 (AB), and Periodic Acid Schiff after Alcian Blue pH 2.5 (PAB).
  • Goblet cell metaplasia was present in 2 out of 30 cases in non-neoplastic cervix, 0 out of 30 cases in non-neoplastic endometrium, 7 out of 15 cases in endocervical adenocarcinoma and in 2 out of 15 cases in endometrial adenocarcinoma.
  • Relatively few goblet cells were seen in endometrial adenocarcinoma, few to moderate amounts were seen in endocervical adenocarcinoma and relatively more goblet cells were seen in non-neoplastic cervix.
  • The differentiation of the goblet cells with its surrounding glandular epithelium was moderate to strong in non-neoplastic cervix and endocervical adenocarcinoma, while the differentiation in endometrial adenocarcinoma was weak to moderate.
  • The must optimum staining methods for staining goblet cells in non-neoplastic cervix, endocervical adenocarcinoma and endometrial adenocarcinoma were PAS, PASD and AB.

  • [Title] Endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma of the uterine corpus involving the cervix: some cases probably represent independent primaries.
  • The immunohistochemical studies showed some differences between the endometrial and endocervical adenocarcinomas in 8 of the 12 cases, independent of differing or similar histologic features.
  • Clonality studies showed differences between the adenocarcinoma in the endometrium and the endocervix in 7 cases, including 5 cases with different histologic appearances; 2 cases had similar loss of heterozygosity patterns.
  • In conclusion, as suggested by clonality studies, coexisting endometrial and endocervical carcinomas with different histologic features are most likely independent neoplasms.
  • Endometrial and endocervical carcinomas that have similar appearances can represent either the same neoplasm or independent primaries.
  • IHC studies may not be helpful for synchronous endometrial and endocervical tumors, especially those of endometrioid type.
  • HPV studies are important to identify endocervical tumors associated with high-risk HPV.
  • However, endometrial tumors involving the cervix and endocervical tumors unrelated to HPV are both negative for high-risk HPV.

  • HPV-18 and -45, along with HPV-16, are found in over 90% of endocervical adenocarcinomas.
  • HPV-45 is the third most frequent HPV type in cervical carcinoma and adenocarcinoma.
  • Both of these factors complicate the interpretation of type-specific, vaccine-induced protection against cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) lesions, in which other HPV DNA types are found along with HPV-16 and -18.
  • The prevention of persistent infections by individual types such as HPV-45 provides specific information on the protection against that type, using an alternative endpoint that relates to both precancer and cancer development.
  • Together with sustained protection against HPV-16 and -18, protection against HPV-45 could offer an additional effect on invasive cervical cancer and may have an important impact on endocervical adenocarcinoma, which is not effectively prevented by screening and is becoming increasingly important in young women.

  • The mass was removed and histology revealed a haphazard proliferation of endocervical-type mucinous glands scattered through the muscularis propria of bladder wall.
  • Immunohistochemical phenotype of these glands was compared with three normal uterine endocervices and two cases of well-differentiated mucinous adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix.
  • On the other hand, only glands of well-differentiated mucinous adenocarcinoma expressed human gastric mucin and showed high proliferative index of Ki-67.
  • Furthermore, diffuse distribution of estrogen and progesterone receptors, lack of human gastric mucin and low proliferative activity were distinct features for endocervicosis compared to well-differentiated mucinous adenocarcinoma.

  • STUDY DESIGN: A total of 90 cases representing nonneoplastic cervix, non-neoplastic endometrium, endocervical adenocarcinoma and endometrial adenocarcinoma were stained with toluidine blue (TB); methylene blue (MB); mucicarmine (MUC); periodic acid-Schiff before and after diastase digestion (PAS, PAS-D); Alcian blue, pH 2.5 (AB); and periodic acid-Schiff after Alcian blue, pH 2.5 (PAB).
  • The malignant glands of endocervical origin could be differentiated significantly (p = 0.043) from non-neoplastic endocervical epithelium by MUC.
  • Endocervical carcinoma could be significantly differentiated from endometrial carcinoma by MB.
  • The staining in endocervical adenocarcinoma and endometrial carcinoma was predominantly present in both apical and cytoplasmic locations compared to their non-neoplastic counterparts (endocervix, p = 0.003; endometrium, p = 0.049).
  • CONCLUSION: This study showed that a panel of histochemical stains could differentiate glandular cells of endocervical epithelium from endometrium.

  • [Title] Endocervical adenocarcinoma associated with lobular endocervical glandular hyperplasia showing rapid reaccumulation of hydrometra.
  • Mucinous endocervical adenocarcinoma is characterized by increased watery vaginal discharge, but the early diagnosis is sometimes difficult because biopsy specimen might only serve to sample a superficial part of the tumor.
  • To investigate the unknown origin of hydrometra, an exploratory laparotomy with total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy was performed, followed by pelvic lymphadenectomy because biopsy specimens during operation suggested adenocarcinoma of the cervix.
  • The final pathologic study of surgical specimens revealed mucinous adenocarcinoma, which was located on the proximal area of cervix.
  • Adjacent to carcinoma tissue, lobular endocervical glandular hyperplasia (LEGH) was detected.
  • Pyloric gland mucin (HIK1083), MUC6, and MUC5AC were diffusely immunopositive in the cytoplasm of LEGH cells and the immunoreactivity became weaker in adenocarcinoma cells with tumor progression and loss of differentiation.
  • Based on histopathologic features of the present case, there seems to be a possible link between LEGH and conventional mucinous endocervical adenocarcinomas.
  • The physician should keep in mind the possible existence of endocervical adenocarcinoma in a patient showing rapid reaccumulation of hydrometra, when uterine malignancies are clinically suspected and biopsy finding fails to confirm the diagnosis.

  • A case of colloid carcinoma (gelatinous carcinoma) of the intestinal type in the uterine cervix is reported along with the findings of an immunohistochemical study of intracytoplasmic mucus of the neoplastic cells.
  • Colloid carcinoma is a very rare variant of mucus-producing adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix and probably a heterogeneous group that consists of neoplasms of different histogeneses, that is, neoplasms of endocervical, gastric, and intestinal origins.
  • Results of the immunohistochemical studies in the present case showed that neoplastic cells produced mucus of the large intestine type, thus verifying the presence of a distinct subtype of colloid carcinoma of the cervix that shows the intestinal phenotype.

  • [Title] Frozen-section evaluation of cervical adenocarcinoma at time of radical trachelectomy: pathologic pitfalls and the application of an objective scoring system.
  • OBJECTIVE: To analyze the incidence of diagnostic discrepancy between frozen-section and final diagnosis of the endocervical margin at time of radical trachelectomy and to apply an objective scoring system to non-invasive endocervical glandular atypia to determine its utility in distinguishing benign from malignant lesions.
  • METHODS: Histologic slides from 19 cases of radical trachelectomy performed for invasive endocervical adenocarcinoma were evaluated for correlation between the frozen and permanent sections of the endocervical margin.
  • An objective scoring system for grading non-invasive endocervical glandular lesions proposed by Ioffe et al. was also applied to the frozen and permanent section slides and compared to the final diagnosis.
  • One trachelectomy was converted to completion hysterectomy for what was presumed to be adenocarcinoma in situ at the margin, which in retrospect, was a benign lesion and was correctly classified using the Ioffe system.
  • Most of the discrepancies were due to misinterpretation of tubal metaplasia, tubo-endometrioid metaplasia, and atypical tubal metaplasia as adenocarcinoma in situ.
  • CONCLUSION: Benign mimics of endocervical adenocarcinoma in situ can be difficult to distinguish from malignant lesions, especially during frozen-section evaluation of the trachelectomy.

  • [Title] Endocervical adenocarcinomas with prominent endometrial or endomyometrial involvement simulating primary endometrial carcinomas: utility of HPV DNA detection and immunohistochemical expression of p16 and hormone receptors to confirm the cervical origin of the corpus tumor.
  • Determining the primary site of a uterine adenocarcinoma can be problematic in hysterectomy specimens due to the overlapping morphology of endocervical adenocarcinomas and endometrial carcinomas, particularly when both the corpus (usually lower uterine segment) and endocervix are involved and precursor lesions are lacking or difficult to distinguish from intramucosal spread of carcinoma from one site to the other.
  • Both preferential extension of endocervical adenocarcinomas into the endometrium (rather than deep cervical stroma) and myometrial invasion derived from the endometrial component are rarely encountered; to our knowledge, these unusual patterns of spread have not been detailed in prior reports.
  • Clinicopathologic features of 10 endocervical adenocarcinomas (9 pure, 1 adenosquamous) with prominent endometrial or endomyometrial involvement were evaluated.
  • Six cases had limited amounts of tumor in the cervix proper, with depths of invasion no greater than 5 mm in 4 and only adenocarcinoma in situ in 2.
  • Five tumors were originally diagnosed as primary endometrial carcinoma with either cervical extension or concurrent endocervical adenocarcinoma in situ.
  • These ancillary techniques are useful for clarifying the origin of uterine adenocarcinomas when morphologic features and tumor location are equivocal.
  • These cases illustrate that dominant uterine corpus involvement (endometrial or endomyometrial) by primary endocervical adenocarcinoma can lead to misclassification as primary endometrial adenocarcinoma with cervical extension (Fédération Internationale de Gynécologie et d'Obstétrique stage II), especially when endometrial extension of endocervical adenocarcinoma simulates complex atypical hyperplasia.
  • A subset of misclassified endocervical adenocarcinomas may account for some HPV-positive uterine carcinomas reported as primary endometrial carcinomas.

  • We report on four cases of endocervical adenocarcinoma associated with lobular endocervical glandular hyperplasia using histochemical and immunohistochemical analyses.
  • Cytological examinations of the cervical smears revealed adenocarcinoma cells and benign-looking glandular cells with intracytoplasmic golden-yellow mucin in all cases.
  • From surgical specimens, three tumors were diagnosed as mucinous adenocarcinoma and one was adenocarcinoma in situ.
  • Adjacent to carcinoma tissues in the cervix, lobular endocervical glandular hyperplasia was detected.
  • The cells of lobular endocervical glandular hyperplasia were dominantly positive with neutral mucin, and immunohistochemistry revealed that these cells had prominent pyloric gland mucin (HIK1083).
  • Either CEA or p53 were immunopositive in all adenocarcinomas and negative in the tissues of lobular endocervical glandular hyperplasia.
  • Histopathological features of the present cases suggest that some endocervical adenocarcinomas may originate from lobular endocervical glandular hyperplasia.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • DESIGN: Antibodies to MUC1, MUC2, MUC4, and MUC5AC were applied on 52 cases including 14 endocervical adenocarcinomas (including 4 adenosquamous carcinomas), 9 endometrial carcinomas (8 endometrioid adenocarcinomas and 1 adenosquamous carcinoma), 8 adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS), 2 glandular dysplasias, 6 tubal metaplasias, 10 microglandular hyperplasias, and 3 normal endocervix.
  • RESULTS: All benign endocervical epithelia, including tubal metaplasia and microglandular hyperplasia, expressed MUC1, MUC4, and MUC5AC but not MUC2.
  • Almost all endocervical AIS and carcinomas and all endometrial adenocarcinomas expressed MUC1; the exceptions were 2 cases of endocervical adenocarcinoma and 1 case of adenosquamous carcinoma of the endocervix.
  • MUC2 staining was noted in 25%, 40%, and 22% of AIS, endocervical adenocarcinomas, and endometrial adenocarcinomas, respectively.
  • About 38% of AIS, 75% of endocervical adenocarcinomas, and 44% of endometrial adenocarcinomas expressed MUC4.
  • Half of AIS, most of endocervical adenocarcinomas, and 22% of endometrial adenocarcinomas expressed MUC5AC.
  • The difference in MUC4 and MUC5AC expression between benign endocervical lesions and AIS and the difference in MUC5AC expression between endocervical and endometrial neoplasms were statistically significant.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Mucin expressions differed among benign endocervical lesions and AIS and among endocervical and endometrial malignancies.

  • RESULTS: (a) In normal uteri, P2X(7) mRNA and protein were expressed predominantly in the epithelial (endometrial, endocervical, and ectocervical) cells. (b) Expression of the P2X(7) mRNA and protein was absent from endometrial and endocervical adenocarcinoma tissues and from cervical squamous cell carcinoma tissues. (c) In cervical dysplasia, P2X(7) protein was absent in the dysplastic lesions. (d) Semiquantitative analysis using P2X(7) mRNA (normalized in each tissue to the constitutive glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase) and P2X(7) protein levels (normalized in each tissue to the constitutive tubulin) revealed that P2X(7) mRNA and/or protein levels can distinguish uterine normal from cancer tissues at high degrees of sensitivity (92%, 100%) and specificity (100%, 90%).

  • To investigate the potential use of MGB in gynecologic pathology practice, we tested MGB expression by immunohistochemistry on 47 endocervical adenocarcinomas (whole tissue sections of 13 invasive and 35 in situ) and 55 endometrial carcinomas (39 endometrioid and 16 nonendometrioid represented on a single tissue microarray).
  • Nonneoplastic endocervical and endometrial tissues were also evaluated for MGB expression.
  • MGB expression was detected in thirty (77%) of 39 of endometrioid endometrial adenocarcinomas compared with 4 (31%) of 13 endocervical adenocarcinomas.
  • Endocervical adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS) showed either weak (predominantly) or moderate (occasionally) expression in about 40% of the cases in comparison with strong positivity in benign endocervical glandular epithelium.
  • These results confirm that MGB is not specific for breast carcinoma, but is also variably expressed in nonneoplastic and neoplastic endocervical and endometrial tissues.
  • Frequent MGB expression in endometrioid endometrial adenocarcinoma is significantly different from nonendometrioid carcinoma.
  • Most endocervical adenocarcinomas are negative for MGB, in contrast to mostly positive endometrioid endometrial adenocarcinomas, however, MGB expression alone is not specific enough to distinguish these 2 tumor types.
  • MGB expression is altered in neoplastic endocervical epithelium compared with normal, and may indicate its decreased expression in the process of early carcinogenesis.

  • BACKGROUND: Distinguishing endocervical adenocarcinoma (ECA) from endometrial mucinous adenocarcinoma (EMMA) is clinically significant in view of the differences in their management and prognosis.
  • In this study, we used a panel of tumor markers to determine their ability to distinguish between primary endocervical adenocarcinoma and primary endometrial mucinous adenocarcinoma.
  • CONCLUSION: A panel of immunohistochemical markers including MUC1, p16, ER, PR, and vimentin is recommended, when there is morphological and clinical doubt as to the primary site of endocervical or endometrial origin.

  • [Title] Lobular endocervical glandular hyperplasia as a presumed precursor of cervical adenocarcinoma independent of human papillomavirus infection.
  • OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to investigate differences in the process of carcinogenesis between adenocarcinoma coexistent with LEGH and conventional adenocarcinoma.
  • As for the cases including adenocarcinoma with LEGH: (a) we created a map showing position of the LEGH component and adenocarcinoma component and squamo-columnar junction (SCJ) in HE-stained specimens, (b) immunohistochemical staining was performed using antibodies to CEA, HIK1083 and p53, and (c) detection of HPV DNA was performed using PCR and in situ hybridization (ISH).
  • RESULTS: Endocervical adenocarcinoma was observed coexistent with LEGH in 5 cases (19.2%). (a) LEGH was located in a remote place from the SCJ.
  • Sizes of lesions in the 5 cases ranged from 18 to 35 mm in width and 7 to 16 mm in depth. (b) HIK1083 was diffusely immunopositive in the cytoplasm of LEGH component and focal immunopositive in 4 cases with adenocarcinoma component.
  • Immunopositivity for CEA was seen in the cytoplasm of adenocarcinoma component in 4 cases.
  • Immunopositivity for p53 was seen in adenocarcinoma component nuclei in 2 cases. (c) HPV DNA was not detected using PCR and ISH in either LEGH or adenocarcinoma components.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The present study suggests that clear differences exist in the process of carcinogenesis between adenocarcinoma associated with LEGH and conventional adenocarcinoma.
  • LEGH may represent a precursor of cervical adenocarcinoma independent of HPV infection.
  • As LEGH displays characteristics of precancerous mucinous adenocarcinoma, surgical treatment should be considered for LEGH growing beyond a certain size.

  • Cytological criteria for the identification of glandular intraepithelial lesions (GIL) have not yet been fully described, especially for the precursors of adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS), thus these lesions may frequently remain unrecognized.
  • The aim of the study was to achieve the most appropriate cytologic diagnosis of intraepithelial lesions of endocervical columnar epithelium, analyzing the cytology findings in patients with histologically verified AIS and GIL (I, II).
  • In terms of differential diagnosis, cytology showed higher accuracy in predicting lesion severity vs. type of epithelial alteration (75.6% vs. 55.3%) and abnormalities of columnar epithelium (95.7%; vs. 74.2%).
  • Continuous improvement in cervical specimens and cytodiagnostic skills, better understanding of intraepithelial adenocarcinoma and precursors, and their inclusion in the classification of cytologic and histologic findings are expected to upgrade the detection of these lesions, and to reduce the invasive cervical adenocarcinoma morbidity and mortality.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • We report analysis of both coordinate expression profiles and staining distribution in 179 rigorously classified mucinous tumors in the ovary, including 53 primary tumors [35 atypical proliferative (borderline) mucinous tumors of gastrointestinal type and 18 invasive mucinous carcinomas] and 126 secondary tumors [28 colorectal adenocarcinomas, 54 appendiceal tumors (23 adenocarcinomas, 31 low-grade adenomatous mucinous tumors associated with pseudomyxoma peritonei), 14 pancreatic adenocarcinomas, 8 endocervical adenocarcinomas, 5 gastric adenocarcinomas, 4 gallbladder/biliary tract adenocarcinomas, and 13 adenocarcinomas of unknown primary sites).
  • A CK7+/CK20+ immunoprofile was the most common profile in primary ovarian tumors (74%), upper gastrointestinal tract tumors (78%), and endocervical tumors (88%) but was occasionally observed in lower intestinal tract tumors (colorectal: 11%; appendiceal: 13% of low-grade tumors, 35% of carcinomas).
  • A CK7-/CK20+ immunoprofile was the most common profile in lower intestinal tract tumors (79%) and was uncommon in upper gastrointestinal tract tumors (9%), rarely seen in primary ovarian tumors (4%), and not seen in endocervical tumors.
  • A CK7+/CK20- profile was observed in some primary ovarian (23%), upper gastrointestinal tract (13%), and endocervical tumors (13%) but not in lower intestinal tract tumors.
  • For CK7+ tumors, staining distribution was very frequently diffuse (>50% of tumors cells positive) in primary ovarian, upper gastrointestinal tract, and endocervical tumors, whereas staining distribution was often focal (<50% of tumors cells positive) when present in colorectal and appendiceal carcinomas but not in low-grade appendiceal tumors.

COS Scholar Universe. author profiles.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Immunohistochemical studies were performed on 124 mucinous tumors, including 52 primary ovarian tumors (30 atypical proliferative (borderline) mucinous tumors of gastrointestinal type, 11 atypical proliferative (borderline) mucinous tumors of seromucinous (endocervical-like) type, and 11 invasive mucinous carcinomas of usual (gastrointestinal) type) and 72 metastatic mucinous carcinomas in the ovary (primary sites: colorectum (24), pancreas (13), endocervix (eight), stomach (four), gallbladder/bile duct (four), appendix (four), and unknown (15)).
  • All atypical proliferative mucinous tumors of gastrointestinal type, primary ovarian mucinous carcinomas, and metastatic mucinous carcinomas were negative for ER and PR with the exception of three metastatic endocervical adenocarcinomas which exhibited only weak expression of ER without PR.
  • All atypical proliferative mucinous tumors of seromucinous type expressed ER to some degree and seven had some expression of PR.
  • Immunohistochemical assessment of hormone receptor expression is of no value in distinguishing the common types of primary ovarian mucinous tumors (atypical proliferative mucinous tumors of gastrointestinal type and mucinous carcinomas of usual type) from the vast majority of mucinous carcinomas metastatic to the ovary.
  • The above observations on hormone receptor expression in primary ovarian mucinous tumors support the concept that atypical proliferative (borderline) mucinous tumors of gastrointestinal and seromucinous (endocervical-like) types are distinctive tumors.

  • Nine low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion, 35 high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion, 23 squamous metaplasia, and 14 adenocarcinoma in situ specimens were retrieved from our hospital files.
  • ProExC had sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive value of 89%, 100%, 100%, and 82%, respectively, for distinguishing high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion from squamous metaplasia, and 93%, 100%, 100%, and 98%, respectively, for distinguishing adenocarcinoma in situ from reactive benign endocervix.
  • ProExC is a valuable marker for distinguishing dysplastic squamous and endocervical lesions of the cervix from squamous metaplasia in histologic sections.
  • ProExC may eventually be used in conjunction with morphologic and human papillomavirus evaluation for better classification of indeterminate cervical lesions in Papanicolaou smears.
