  • [Title] Human papillomavirus 16 infection in adenocarcinoma of the cervix.
  • The impact of the success of organised cervical screening programme results in a steady decline of the incidence of squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix but a concomitant increase in the incidence of the less common histological subtypes, particularly adenocarcinoma of the cervix (ACC).
  • Although Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is believed to be a necessary cause of cervical cancer, its role in the pathogenesis of ACC is not well established.
  • In this study, the cervical adenocarcinoma cells of a 10-year cohort of women diagnosed with ACC were dissected using the PixCell II Laser Microdissecting System to detect the HPV 16 genome sequence using the real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction to confirm the presence of HPV DNA within ACC cells.

  • [Title] Villoglandular papillary adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix: a diagnostic challenge.
  • Villoglandular papillary adenocarcinoma (VGA) is a rare subtype of cervical adenocarcinoma.
  • The aim of our study was to evaluate the reliability of histological assessment for pre-treatment diagnosis of VGA.
  • Median age at diagnosis was 38.8 years (range 27-65).
  • The final histological report on the remaining three patients was invasive cervical adenocarcinoma.
  • We conclude that pre-treatment diagnosis should not be based solely on a simple punch biopsy because of its low rate of diagnostic accuracy.

  • [Title] Prevalence of human papillomavirus types 16 and 18 in cervical adenocarcinoma and its precursors in Scottish patients.
  • Our aim was to determine the prevalence of human papillomavirus (HPV) types 16 and 18 in cervical adenocarcinoma (and its precursors) in Scottish patients.
  • We examined 119 cases of invasive adenocarcinoma, 20 cases of adenocarcinoma in situ, and 16 cases of normal glandular epithelium.
  • Our findings support that HPV-16, along with HPV-18, are likely to play a significant role in the pathogenesis of cervical adenocarcinomas and that cervical cancer screening strategies that incorporate oncogenic HPV testing, and prophylactic vaccines that target these types, will be beneficial for the reduction of adenocarcinoma and associated glandular precursors.

  • [Title] Expression of HIPK2 in cervical cancer: correlation with clinicopathology and prognosis.
  • This study was carried out to investigate the expression of HIPK2, and its correlation with clinicopathological features and prognosis in cervical carcinoma.
  • STUDY DESIGN: Forty-three cases of cervical cancer and ten cases of normal cervical tissue were analysed retrospectively between January 2002 and December 2006 at the Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital of Fudan University.
  • RESULTS: The nuclear positive rate of HIPK2 was significantly higher in the cervical cancer group than in the control group (76.7% vs 10.0%, P < 0.05).
  • The expression of HIPK2 was significantly lower in stage I tumours than in stage II/III tumours (60.9% vs 95.0%, P < 0.05), indicating that HIPK2 expression is correlated with the development of cervical cancer.
  • HIPK2 expression was higher in cervical adenocarcinoma than that in squamous cell carcinoma (90.0% vs 72.7%), but there was no significant difference.
  • HIPK2 expression was significantly higher than p53 in cervical cancer (P < 0.05), but there was no correlation between HIPK2 and p53.
  • CONCLUSION: The expression of HIPK2 may play an important role in cervical carcinogenesis.

  • The histopathologic distinction of cervical adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS) and invasive adenocarcinoma (AC) from some benign endocervical lesions can be challenging.
  • ProEx C immunohistochemical staining was performed on sections from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue of 65 cervical tissues including 48 non-neoplastic cervices (normal [n=10], microglandular hyperplasia [n=10], tubal metaplasia [n=11], cervical endometriosis [n=7], reactive endocervix [n=10]) and 17 cervices with glandular malignancy (AIS [n=12] and AC [n=5]).
  • The median and distribution of scores for both prevalence and intensity was compared for AIS versus each of the 5 benign cervical lesions using a Mann-Whitney U test.
  • ProEx C reagent has potential as an adjunctive testing tool in the histopathologic diagnosis of both AIS and AC, particularly in difficult cases with small biopsies or foci of disease.

  • [Title] Human papillomavirus localization in cervical adenocarcinoma and adenosquamous carcinoma using in situ polymerase chain reaction: review of the literature of human papillomavirus detection in these carcinomas.
  • Many studies have suggested that human papillomavirus (HPV) infection plays an important role in the carcinogenesis of the cervical adenocarcinoma.
  • However, the prevalence of HPV infection in cervical adenocarcinoma and adenosquamous carcinoma varies among the studies.
  • Cervical adenocarcinoma (24 cases) and adenosquamous carcinoma (16 cases), including the underlying non-neoplastic epithelium were examined for HPV-DNA using in situ polymerase chain reaction (PCR), which enabled visualization of the localization on a glass slide.
  • In adenocarcinoma, HPV-DNA was found in 13 cases (54%) and in eight cases in underlying non-neoplastic epithelium, resulting in a total of 21 positive cases (88%).
  • In adenosquamous carcinoma, HPV-DNA was detected in 12 cases (75%) and and the HPV-DNA localization of each component was pure adenocarcinoma, 28.6%; mixed, 54.5%; and pure squamous cell carcinoma, 83.3%.
  • In the underlying non-neoplastic epithelium, HPV-DNA was found more frequently in the squamous epithelium (73.3%) than the cervical glands (6.3%).
  • In conclusion, HPV-DNA was detected in 54% of adenocarcinoma, and the rate was elevated by HPV localization in the underlying non-neoplastic epithelium.
  • HPV infection in the underlying squamous epithelium might be related to the carcinogenesis, even in cervical adenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] [MR Imaging of the pelvis in the diagnosis of the endometrium in breast cancer patients in tamoxifen therapy].
  • PURPOSE: The purpose of the study was to determine the value of MR imaging of the pelvis in the diagnostic work-up of the endometrium in breast cancer patients in tamoxifen therapy.
  • The volume of the uterus and cervix and the maximal thickness of the endometrium, junctional zone and myometrium of the uterus were determined and compared to the confidence interval of the parameters in healthy women.
  • The Mann-Whitney U-test was used to identify differences in the volume of the uterus and cervix and in the thickness of the uterine wall layers in both groups.
  • RESULTS: A comparison of the volume of the uterus and cervix and the thickness of the uterine wall layers in the two groups yielded no significant differences.
  • The volume of the uterus and cervix showed no statistical differences between the two groups.
  • In 12 of the 24 breast cancer patients, the endometrium showed inhomogeneous signal intensity.
  • CONCLUSION: MR imaging might be helpful in the diagnosis of endometrium pathologies during tamoxifen therapy.
  • Therefore, MR imaging of the pelvis could be used as a diagnostic tool in the follow-up diagnosis of the endometrium in breast cancer patients in tamoxifen therapy.

  • In addition to cytological screening, early diagnosis and treatment of cervical carcinoma rely on sensitive detection and typing of HPV isolates.
  • In this study, HPV detection and typing were performed in the cervical samples of patients with abnormal cytological evaluation.
  • Forty randomly-selected cervical samples that comprise 18 ASC-US (Aypical Squamous Cells of Undetermined Significance), four AG-US (Aypical Glandular cells of Undetermined Significance), one ASC-H (Atypical Squamous Cells-can not exclude HSIL), one HSIL (High-grade Intraepithelial Lesion), 14 LSIL (Low-grade Intraepithelial Lesion), one adenocarcinoma and one squamous cell carcinoma, obtained by a commercial liquid-based cytology system (ThinPrep Pap Smear Method, Cytyc, USA), were included to the study.

  • [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.
  • METHODS: Using the surgical pathology files of patients who visited the University of Yamanashi Hospital, Yamanashi Central Hospital and Kofu Municipal Hospital between 1996 and 2005, pathological diagnoses were reevaluated based on criteria for the diagnosis of LEGH by Nucci et al.
  • 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.

  • [Title] Association of constitutive nuclear factor-kappaB activation with aggressive aspects and poor prognosis in cervical cancer.
  • INTRODUCTION: Although nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) is generally believed to be involved in carcinogenesis, the relationship between NF-kappaB activation and progression of cervical cancer in clinical settings has not been reported.
  • In this study, we investigated the association of NF-kappaB activation with aggressive aspects and prognosis in cervical cancer.
  • METHODS: Nuclear factor-kappaB subunits p65 and p50 were detected in 159 paraffin tissues including normal cervical, precancerous (squamous intraepithelial lesions), and cervical carcinoma tissues by immunohistochemistry.
  • RESULTS: A gradual NF-kappaB activation from normal cervical epithelial cells to precancerous and carcinoma cells was detected by immunohistochemistry (nuclear expression of p65 and p50, P < 0.001), Western blot (NF-kappaB nuclear translocation), and electrophoretic mobility shift assay (enhanced DNA-binding activity).
  • In 79 cancer tissues, increased nuclear p65, an active NF-kappaB form, was correlated with poor tumor grade, lymphatic metastasis, interstitial invasion, and larger tumor size (P < 0.05).
  • Moreover, increased nuclear p65 was associated with lower survival rate in patients with cancer (P < 0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Constitutive NF-kappaB activation is correlated to tumor progression, aggressive behaviors, and poor prognosis in cervical cancer, suggesting that NF-kappaB is a tumor promoter, a prognostic indicator, and a possible therapeutic target for this malignant disease.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Aspects of immunohistochemistry (IHC), which are useful in the diagnosis of ovarian tumors (mostly neoplasms but also a few tumor-like lesions), are discussed.
  • IHC for neuroendocrine markers may assist in the diagnosis of primary and metastatic carcinoid tumor.
  • The broad differential diagnosis of glandular neoplasms with an endometrioid-pseudoendometrioid morphology, or mucinous cell type, has been the subject of much exploration in recent years, particularly the distinction between primary and metastatic neoplasms.
  • The well-known CK7 positive, CK20 negative phenotype of primary endometrioid carcinoma, and the converse profile in most metastatic large intestinal adenocarcinomas with a pseudoendometrioid morphology, has been much publicized but albeit an appropriate supportive adjunct in many cases, exceptions from the typical staining pattern may be encountered.
  • The rare differential of metastatic cervical adenocarcinoma versus primary ovarian mucinous or endometrioid carcinoma may be aided by strong p16 staining of the former.
  • Staining for alpha-fetoprotein may aid in confirming the diagnosis of endometrioid-like (and hepatoid) variants of yolk sac tumor.
  • As in tumor pathology in general, various markers may be crucial in the diagnosis of small round cell tumors of the ovary, and familiar markers of epithelial, lymphoid, leukemic, and melanocytic neoplasms may assist in the analysis of high grade tumors with a poorly differentiated carcinoma, lymphoma-granulocytic sarcoma, malignant melanoma differential.

  • [Title] Factors predicting tumour regression in locally advanced cervical adenocarcinoma treated with balloon-occluded intra-arterial chemotherapy.
  • We retrospectively assessed the factors that may impede tumour reduction of locally advanced cervical adenocarcinoma treated with balloon-occluded arterial infusion chemotherapy (BOAI) as initial therapy.
  • BOAI was performed via uterine arteries in 21 patients, and via the anterior division or main trunk of the internal iliac artery (when the uterine arteries were obscured) in 10 patients.
  • Internal iliac arterial infusion significantly correlated with "no response" compared with uterine arterial infusion (p<0.001).
  • These data suggest that uterine arteries being obscured to arterial infusion may be associated with a poor response to BOAI for cervical adenocarcinoma.

  • [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).
  • All usual cervical adenocarcinomas were diffusely CK7 and p16 positive, and all were immunoreactive with CEA.
  • 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.
  • The foci of signet ring cells in the 2 primary cervical adenocarcinomas were diffusely CK7 and p16 positive and negative with CK20 and CDX2.
  • Colorectal adenocarcinomas involving the cervix were typically diffusely positive with CK20, CEA, and CDX2; negative with CK7; and negative or focally positive with p16.
  • 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.
  • 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] 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.
  • Four cases had cervical stromal invasion of more than 5 mm but all of these had greater amounts of horizontal extension into endometrium or endomyometrium.
  • Five tumors were originally diagnosed as primary endometrial carcinoma with either cervical extension or concurrent endocervical adenocarcinoma in situ.
  • HPV DNA was detected in both the cervical and corpus components in all tumors and all exhibited diffuse/strong p16 expression and decreased or absent expression of hormone receptors.
  • 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.

  • The present work examines the effects of beta and alpha1-adrenoceptor antagonist carvedilol, and angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor captopril, on in vitro growth of tumor cell lines derived from breast tumor (MDA-MB-361), melanoma (Fem-x), cervix adenocarcinoma (HeLa) and human myelogenous leukemia (K562).
  • The order of sensitivity of various human cell lines to carvedilol's antiproliferative action was: myelogenous leukemia K562 (IC50 = 22.66 +/- 2.14 micromol), > cervix carcinoma HeLa (IC50 = 30.56 +/- 5.16 micromol), > melanoma Fem-x (IC50 = 32.17 +/- 5.75 micromol), > breast tumor MDA-MB-361 (IC50 = 35.04 +/- 2.95 micromol).
  • Understanding the action of these established and clinically accepted agents could provide a basis for design of improved therapeutic regimens in the treatment of cancer diseases.

  • [Title] Downregulation of BRG-1 repressed expression of CD44s in cervical neuroendocrine carcinoma and adenocarcinoma.
  • Neuroendocrine carcinomas of the uterine cervix are rare tumors with early metastases, highly aggressive clinical behavior, and poor clinical outcome.
  • We have examined the expression of the standard CD44 (CD44s) by immunohistochemical stains in the paraffin-embedded cervical neoplasm tissue of 17 cases of primary cervical neuroendocrine carcinoma, 28 cases of cervical adenocarcinoma, and 50 cases of cervical squamous cell carcinoma.
  • Loss of CD44s expression was found in 16 of 17 neuroendocrine carcinomas, 14 of 28 adenocarcinomas, and three of 50 squamous cell carcinomas.
  • Loss of BRG-1 expression was observed in 12/16, 6/14, and 1/3 CD44s-negative neuroendocrine carcinomas, adenocarcinomas, and squamous cell carcinomas, respectively.
  • This study suggests that loss of the CD44s molecule may imply special biological behaviors of cervical neuroendocrine carcinomas, and loss of expression of BRG-1 may contribute to this.

  • Previous studies have suggested that upregulation of Cyclin A-dependent protein kinase 2 (Cdk2) activity is an essential event in apoptotic progression and the mitochondrial permeability transition in human cancer cells.
  • Here, we show that upregulated Cyclin A/Cdk2 activity precedes the proteolytic cleavage of PARP and is correlated with the mitochondrial translocation of Bax and the loss of mitochondrial transmembrane potential (Deltapsim) during etoposide-induced apoptosis in human cervical adenocarcinoma (HeLa) cells.

  • [Title] [Clinical significance on atypical cervical glandular cytology].
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the pathological features and clinical implications of atypical glandular cells of undetermined significance (AGC) in cervical cytological results.
  • METHODS: All 87 cases of cervical cytological examinations with AGC were identified by a computerized database in our patient population.
  • The authors analyzed the cervical histopathological results by colposcopic biopsy, dilatation and curettage (D&C), cervical loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP)and follow-ups. RESULTS:.
  • (1) Thirty-five cases (40.23%) had cervical and endometrial neoplasic findings: ten glandular lesions (11.49%) and squamous lesion was present in 25 patients (28.74%). (2) Among 61 patients with Pap smears subclassified as "AGC-not otherwise specified", there were 18 pathological abnormalities.
  • Ten patients with AGC as "adenocarcinoma in situ" or "adenocarcinoma" were of 6 pathological abnormalities. (3) 100% of patients with AGC had both of colposcopic and cytologic follow-ups: 1 case CIN1, 1 case CIN2 and 1 case CIN3. (4) One of 10 patients was younger than 35 years old with CGIN1 and the other 9 patient aged over 35 years old had a greater diversity of glandular lesions.
  • CONCLUSION: A finding of AGC requires both colposcopy and an aggressive workup because of a high rate of cancer and precancerous lesions.

  • OBJECTIVE: A retrospective analysis was carried out to evaluate the prognostic significance of peritoneal cytology in cervical adenocarcinoma.
  • METHODS: The records of 107 patients with FIGO stage IB to IIB cervical adenocarcinoma who underwent hysterectomy were reviewed.
  • Cox model analysis revealed positive cytology [hazards ratio (HR) 6.27, 95% confidence interval (CI) 2.13-18.41], positive lymph node (HR 6.20, 95% CI 1.87-20.57), ovarian metastasis (HR 5.20, 95% CI 1.18-22.82), and histological grade (HR 5.97, 95% CI 2.00-17.78) to be independent adverse risk factors for survival among the factors analyzed (lymph node status, lymph-vascular space invasion, tumor size, depth in cervical wall, pathological parametrial involvement, infiltration to vagina, ovarian metastasis, and histological grade).
  • CONCLUSION: The presence of positive peritoneal cytology appears to be an independent prognostic risk factor in patients with cervical adenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Inhibin/activin-betaE subunit in normal and malignant human cervical tissue and cervical cancer cell lines.
  • Recently a novel beta subunit named betaE was described, although it is still unclear if normal or cancerous cervical epithelial cells as well as cervical cancer cell lines can synthesise the novel inhibin-betaE subunit.
  • About 4 normal cervical tissue samples together with 10 specimens of well-differentiated squamous cervical cancer and adenocarcinoma of the cervix were immunohistochemical analyzed.
  • Additionally, two cervical carcinoma cell lines (HeLa and CaSki) were analyzed by immunofluorescence and RT-PCR for the expression of this novel subunit.
  • We demonstrated for the first time an immunolabelling of the inhibin-betaE subunit in normal and malignant cervical tissue, as well as cervical cancer cells.
  • Although the physiological role is still quite unclear in cervical tissue, inhibin-betaE might play important roles in carcinogenesis.
  • Moreover, the synthesis of this subunit in cervical carcinoma cell lines of squamous and glandular epithelial origins also allows the use of these cell lines in elucidating its functions in cervical cancer pathogenesis.
  • However, since the expression of the inhibin-betaE is minimal in HeLa cells as assessed by immunofluorescence and RT-PCR, the CaSki cell line might be a better model for further functional experiments regarding cervical cancer pathogenesis.

  • [Title] p16 expression in the female genital tract and its value in diagnosis.
  • Diffuse (as opposed to focal) positivity with p16 in the cervix can be regarded as a surrogate marker of the presence of high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV).
  • In cervical squamous lesions, p16 is positive in most high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) and in some cases of low-grade CIN, usually those associated with high-risk HPV. p16 may be useful to identify small focal high-grade CIN lesions, to distinguish some cases of CIN involving immature metaplastic squamous epithelium from immature metaplastic squamous epithelium not involved by CIN and to distinguish high-grade CIN from benign mimics.
  • Most cervical carcinomas of squamous, glandular, and small cell type are p16-positive.
  • In cervical glandular lesions, p16 is useful, as part of a panel, in the distinction between adenocarcinoma in situ (diffusely positive) and benign mimics, including tuboendometrial metaplasia and endometriosis, which are usually p16-negative or focally positive. p16 may be used, in combination with other markers, to distinguish between a cervical adenocarcinoma (diffuse positivity) and an endometrioid-type endometrial adenocarcinoma (negative or focally positive).
  • Some uterine serous carcinomas are diffusely positive.
  • In the uterus, p16 positivity is more common and widespread in leiomyosarcomas than leiomyomas, and this may be a useful aid to diagnosis, although problematic uterine smooth muscle neoplasms have not been extensively studied.
  • Metastatic cervical adenocarcinomas in the ovary are usually diffusely p16-positive, and because these may closely mimic a primary ovarian endometrioid or mucinous adenocarcinoma, this may be a valuable diagnostic aid, although p16 expression in primary ovarian adenocarcinomas of these morphologic subtypes has not been widely investigated.
  • Some ovarian serous carcinomas, similar to their uterine counterparts, are p16-positive.

  • BACKGROUND: Adenoid cystic carcinoma, a variant of adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix, is an extremely rare neoplasm.
  • This report describes a case of primary adenoid cystic carcinoma of the uterine cervix and includes the cytopathologic and histopathologic findings.
  • Speculum examination showed a firm mass in the uterine cervix.
  • The diagnosis of adenoid cystic carcinoma was confirmed by the histopathologic examination of the biopsy specimen as well as the excised specimen, which characteristically revealed the presence of a cribriform pattern of the tumor cells.
  • CONCLUSION: We reported a case of a rare and unusual variant of adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix by considering the characteristic cytologic features of the globules of pale, translucent material surrounded by halos of cells in cribriform adenoid cystic carcinoma.

  • [Title] [Expression and significance of Smad2/3 and HPV16 E7 in cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and cervical carcinoma].
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV) is an important carcinogenic agent of cervical cancer.
  • However, their relationship in the genesis of cervical cancer is unclear.
  • This study was to detect the expression of Smad2/3 and HPV16 E7 protein in different cervical lesions, and to explore their possible roles in tumor genesis and progression.
  • METHODS: The expression of Smad2/3 and HPV16 E7 in 20 specimens of chronic cervicitis, 30 specimens of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), and 30 specimens of cervical cancer was detected by SP immunohistochemistry.
  • RESULTS: The positive rates of Smad2/3 were significantly lower in cervicitis and CIN than in cervical cancer (50.0% and 73.3% vs. 93.3%, P<0.05), and significantly lower in cervicitis than in CINIII(P<0.05).
  • The positive rates of HPV16 E7 were 60.0% in cervicitis, 66.7% in CIN, and 83.3% in cervical cancer (P>0.05).
  • The expression of Smad2/3 in cervical cancer had no correlation to clinical stage, pathologic classification, histological grade, and lymph node involvement(P>0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Overexpression of Smad2/3 may be involved in the genesis of cervical cancer.
  • It is closely correlated to HPV infection in cervical carcinoma.

  • [Title] Prevalence and clinical relevance of cyclooxygenase-1 and -2 expression in stage IIB cervical adenocarcinoma.
  • OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to determine the relationship between cyclooxygenase (COX)-1 and -2 and prognosis in patients diagnosed with FIGO stage IIB cervical adenocarcinoma who underwent concurrent chemoradiotherapy.
  • STUDY DESIGN: Twenty-three patients diagnosed with stage IIB cervical adenocarcinoma and treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy between 1990 and 1995 were included in this study.
  • COX-2 expression was associated with poor response to treatment and cancer-related death (P=0.043 and 0.012, respectively).
  • CONCLUSION: Only COX-2 was found to be a potent prognostic factor in patients treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy for stage IIB cervical adenocarcinoma.
  • However, further studies with more samples are needed to definitely demonstrate the relationship between COX expression and cervical adenocarcinoma.

  • [Title] Socioeconomic differences in incidence of cervical cancer in Finland by cell type.
  • INTRODUCTION: We studied variation in incidence of cervix cancer during 1971-1995 among Finnish women born in 1906 to 1945 by social class and cell type.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: The Finnish Cancer Registry data were linked to the 1970 Population Census, which included social class data.
  • There were 0.8 million individuals in the cohort under follow-up, with 5,102 squamous cell cancers and 573 cases of cervical adenocarcinoma diagnosed after the census date.
  • RESULTS: Incidence of squamous cell cancer was more than two-fold in the lowest social class (standardized incidence ratio (SIR) 1.29, 95% CI 1.21-1.36) as compared with the highest one (SIR 0.59, 0.51-0.66), while there was no association between social class and risk on adenocarcinoma (SIR 1.07, 0.87-1.28 and 1.08, 0.79-1.45, respectively).
  • DISCUSSION: Oncogenic HPV is regarded as the necessary cause of all types of cervix cancer.
  • Lack of association between adenocarcinoma and social class makes the HPV-etiology of this cell type less credible than that of squamous cell cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Hec1 (Highly Expressed in Cancer gene 1) has recently been shown to play an important role in the proper segregation of chromosomes during mitosis.
  • Recently, an adenovirus delivery system carrying RNA interference (RNAi) of Hec1 has been reported in a cervical adenocarcinoma model.
  • METHODS: Two adenoviruses (Ad-siRNA-Hec1 and Ad-siRNA-Hec1.F5/3), along with a negative control (Ad-siRNA-GAPDH.F5/3), were created using homologous recombination.
  • RESULTS: QPCR demonstrated a 2-log viral infectivity enhancement with Ad-siRNA-Hec1.F5/3 over Ad-siRNA-Hec1.
  • QPCR at 72 h revealed mRNA knockdown induced by Ad-siRNA-Hec1 and Ad-siRNA-Hec1.F5/3 in SKOV3.ip1 and HEY cells, respectively (71%/60%, and 32%/78% mRNA knockdown compared to negative control).
  • Western blot revealed translational inhibition induced by both Hec1 Ads with the least knockdown seen with Ad-siRNA-GAPDH.F5/3.
  • MTS assay indicated increased cell death 8 days post-infection with Ad-siRNA-Hec1 and Ad-siRNA-Hec1.F5/3 in SKOV3.ip1 and HEY cell lines, respectively (75% vs. 35% and 43% vs. 12% viable cells).
  • Crystal violet staining revealed increased cell death with Ad-siRNA-Hec1.F5/3 in all tested cell lines.
  • The infectivity-enhanced adenovirus as delivery mechanism shows potential application in future gene therapy models of RNAi in ovarian cancer.

  • [Title] Distribution of HPV genotypes in uterine cervical lesions in Yanbian, northern China.
  • The aim of the present study was to investigate the distribution of HPV genotypes in uterine cervical lesions in Yanbian, northern China.
  • HPV-DNA chip (oligonucleotide microarray) and cervical biopsy were used for 322 women in 1998-2005.
  • All the normal cervical epithelia were negative for HPV.
  • The positive rate of high-risk HPV was 33.9% in cervical intra-epithelial neoplasia (CIN)-1, 51.6% in CIN-2, 57.7% in CIN-3, 66.7% in cervical glandular intra-epithelial neoplasia (CGIN), 91.7% in squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and 78.6% in adenocarcinoma.
  • HPV-16 was the major type in all CIN and SCC cervical lesions, but in cervical adenocarcinoma HPV-18 was the most common type, and HPV-16 was the second most common type.
  • Several cases of CIN-3, SCC and adenocarcinoma had multiple types of HPV, but there was none in CIN-1/2.
  • In summary, HPV-16 is the type most frequently involved in the development of SCC of the cervix, and this may be helpful for the prediction of the development and progress of CIN-2/3, whereas both HPV-18 and -16 play a prominent role in the development of adenocarcinoma and CGIN of the cervix in Yanbian, northern China.

  • Cancer of the uterine cervix is the second most common cancer in women worldwide.
  • Currently, cervical screening is based on cytology alone.
  • Because infection with high-risk human papillomavirus types (hrHPVs) is a necessary cause of cervical cancer, it has been postulated that screening might become more efficient when it is based on combined cytology and hrHPV testing.
  • In this review we will discuss the advantages of added HPV tests in cervical cancer screening, as a quality control for false-negative smears, in triage of women with equivocal smears, in follow-up of women treated for CIN3 or cervical cancer and for the detection of cervical adenocarcinoma.

  • BACKGROUND: It was suggested that single-nucleotide polymorphisms in p21 codon 31 seem to be associated with a variety of human malignancies; very few studies have focused on the association between p21 codon 31 polymorphisms and cervical cancer.
  • This study explored whether p21 codon 31 nonsynonymous single-nucleotide polymorphisms might be associated with an increased risk of cervical cancer development among Chinese women.
  • METHODS: Peripheral blood samples were obtained from patients with cervical cancer (n = 317) and healthy controls (n = 353) for detecting the biallelic polymorphisms at codon 31 of p21 gene by the mismatch amplification mutation assay-polymerase chain reaction.
  • Cervix brush-off samples were obtained from patients with cervical squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and controls for detection of high-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV).
  • RESULTS: The AGA (Arg) allele frequency in patients with cervical SCCs was significantly higher than that in controls.
  • AGA/AGA and AGA/AGC genotypes were more frequently found in cervical SCCs than in controls.
  • There was no significant difference of allele frequency or genotype distribution between cervical adenocarcinomas and controls, or between HR-HPV-positive and HR-HPV-negative groups.
  • CONCLUSIONS: p21 Codon 31 with AGA (Arg) allele is a genetic risk factor of cervical SCC, and the increased risk is probably not caused by increasing host susceptibility to HR-HPV infection.

  • [Title] Familial clustering of cancer at human papillomavirus-associated sites according to the Swedish Family-Cancer Database.
  • Familial aggregation of cervical cancer has been demonstrated previously, however aggregation of other human papillomavirus-associated anogenital, upper aerodigestive tract and skin cancers has not been fully characterized.
  • The Swedish Family-Cancer Database, which contains reliable data on cancer incidence and nuclear family linkages for all residents of Sweden between 1958 and 2004, was used to calculate standardized incidence ratios (SIR) and 95% confidence intervals for offspring site-specific cancer risks according to site-specific cancer in sibling and parental probands.
  • Offspring cancer risk was significantly increased when either a sibling or parent was affected at the same site for penile squamous cell carcinoma (SCC, SIR = 7.54), cervical adenocarcinoma (AC, SIR = 2.31), vulvar SCC (SIR = 2.27), skin SCC (SIR = 2.14), rectal AC (SIR = 1.86), in situ cervical SCC (SIR = 1.80), invasive cervical SCC (SIR = 1.77) and upper aerodigestive tract SCC (SIR = 1.57).
  • In situ cervical SCC risk in offspring was strongly influenced by siblings affected with oropharyngeal SCC (SIR = 3.17) and tonsillar SCC (SIR = 1.84).
  • Familial skin SCC was largely unassociated with anogenital or upper aerodigestive tract cancer risk in offspring.

  • [Title] Optimal dose for stage IIIB adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix on the basis of biological effective dose.
  • PURPOSE: Prognosis of uterine cervical adenocarcinoma in locally advanced stage treated with radiation therapy has been considered to be much worse than that of squamous cell carcinoma because the optimal dose for the former one has not been determined.
  • Thus, the current study was performed to investigate the optimal dose for Stage IIIB, locally advanced stage, adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix on the basis of the biological effective dose (BED).
  • METHODS: One-hundred and seventy-nine patients with Stage IIIB carcinoma of the uterine cervix were treated with curative intended therapy at Kitasato University Hospital between 1976 and 2000.
  • Out of them, 13 patients had an adenocarcinoma component in pathological findings.
  • Nine patients were diagnosed with adenocarcinoma and four patients were diagnosed with adenosquamous cell carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSION: The current study suggested that the optimal dose for Stage IIIB adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix might be T-BED10 > or = 100 Gy.

  • OBJECTIVES:. (1) To compare the anatomopathological variables and recurrence rates in patients with early-stage adenocarcinoma (AC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the uterine cervix;.
  • STUDY DESIGN: This historical cohort study assessed 238 patients with carcinoma of the uterine cervix (IB and IIA), who underwent radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymph node dissection between 1980 and 1999.
  • AC presented lower histological grade than did SCC (grade 1: 68.6% versus 9.4%; p<0.001), lower rate of lymphovascular space involvement (25.7% versus 53.7%; p=0.002), lower rate of invasion into the middle or deep thirds of the uterine cervix (40.0% versus 80.8%; p<0.001) and lower rate of lymph node metastasis (2.9% versus 16.3%; p=0.036).
  • Multivariate analysis identified three independent risk factors for recurrence: presence of metastases in the pelvic lymph nodes, invasion of the deep third of the uterine cervix and absence of or slight inflammatory reaction in the cervix.

  • [Title] Second cancers after squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma of the cervix.
  • PURPOSE: Although cervical squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and adenocarcinoma (AC) are both caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, they differ in cofactors such as cigarette smoking.
  • We assessed whether these cofactor differences translate into differences in second cancer risk.
  • PATIENTS AND METHODS: We assessed second cancer risk among 85,109 cervical SCC and 10,280 AC survivors reported to population-based cancer registries in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and the United States.
  • RESULTS: Overall cancer risk was significantly increased among both cervical SCC survivors (n = 10,559 second cancers; SIR, 1.31; 95% CI, 1.29 to 1.34) and AC survivors (n = 920 second cancers; SIR, 1.29; 95% CI, 1.22 to 1.38).
  • Risks of HPV-related and radiation-related cancers were increased to a similar extent among cervical SCC and AC survivors.
  • Although significantly increased in both groups when compared with the general population, risk of smoking-related cancers was significantly higher among cervical SCC than AC survivors (P = .015; SIR for cervical SCC = 2.07 v AC = 1.78).
  • This difference was limited to lung cancer (SIR for cervical SCC = 2.69 v AC = 2.18; P = .026).
  • The increased lung cancer risk among cervical AC survivors was observed for both lung SCC and lung AC.
  • SIRs for second cancers of the colon, soft tissue, melanoma, and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma were significantly higher among cervical AC than SCC survivors.
  • CONCLUSION: The second cancer profiles among cervical SCC and AC survivors mirror the similarities and differences in cofactors for these two histologies.
  • Because smoking is not a cofactor for cervical AC, the increased lung cancer risk suggests a role for additional factors.

  • [Title] A panel of 3 markers including p16, ProExC, or HPV ISH is optimal for distinguishing between primary endometrial and endocervical adenocarcinomas.
  • Endometrial and endocervical adenocarcinomas may seem histologically identical and it can be difficult to determine primary site of origin based on morphology alone.
  • The TMA consisted of 214 endometrial carcinomas, 33 endocervical adenocarcinomas, and 36 problematic cases.
  • The endometrial and endocervical carcinomas represented usual endometrioid and mucinous types, and special variants (uterine serous carcinoma, uterine clear cell carcinoma, minimal deviation endocervical adenocarcinoma, cervical small cell carcinoma, adenoid basal cell carcinoma, mesonephric carcinoma).
  • Using a script written in R, the diagnostic accuracy of all possible combinations of markers was evaluated and it was shown that a 3 marker panel including vimentin, ER, or PR, and an HPV marker (p16, ProExC, or HPV ISH) is optimal for determining site of origin for usual endometrial and endocervical adenocarcinomas.

  • The objective of this study was to evaluate the frequency and the significance of cytomorphological criteria defined in studies as being predictive of neoplasia in cervical smears of women with a cytological diagnosis of atypical glandular cells (AGC) or adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS).
  • The criteria analyzed and classified as present or absent in cervical smears previously classified as AGC-NOS (not otherwise specified), AGC-FN (favor neoplasia), or AIS were as follows: irregular nuclear membranes; scanty cytoplasm; dyskeratotic cells; increased nuclear/cytoplasmic ratio; nucleoli; overlapping; papillary clusters, feathering; loss of polarity; nuclear enlargement; coarsely granular chromatin; and pseudostratified strips.
  • Coarsely granular chromatin was observed in 62.5% of cases with a diagnosis of neoplasia.
  • Loss of polarity and coarsely granular chromatin were significantly associated with neoplastic diagnosis considering all subcategories of glandular abnormalities diagnosis.
  • In AGC-SOE subclassification, coarsely granular chromatin was significantly associated with neoplastic diagnosis.
  • The presence of nucleoli was significantly associated with neoplastic diagnosis in cervical smears qualified as AGC-FN and AIS.

  • [Title] Iron(III)-salophene: an organometallic compound with selective cytotoxic and anti-proliferative properties in platinum-resistant ovarian cancer cells.
  • BACKGROUND: In this pioneer study to the biological activity of organometallic compound Iron(III)-salophene (Fe-SP) the specific effects of Fe-SP on viability, morphology, proliferation, and cell-cycle progression on platinum-resistant ovarian cancer cell lines were investigated.
  • METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Fe-SP displayed selective cytotoxicity against SKOV-3 and OVCAR-3 (ovarian epithelial adenocarcinoma) cell lines at concentrations between 100 nM and 1 microM, while the viability of HeLa cells (epithelial cervix adenocarcinoma) or primary lung or skin fibroblasts was not affected.
  • When intra-peritoneally applied to rats Fe-SP did not show any systemic toxicity at concentrations that in preliminary trials were determined to be chemotherapeutic relevant doses in a rat ovarian cancer cell model.
  • CONCLUSION/SIGNIFICANCE: The present report suggests that Fe-SP is a potent growth-suppressing agent in vitro for cell lines derived from ovarian cancer and a potential therapeutic drug to treat such tumors in vivo.

  • [Title] Successful conservative treatment of endocervical adenocarcinoma stage Ib1 diagnosed early in pregnancy.
  • Traditionally when cervical cancer is diagnosed during the first trimester of pregnancy, oncological treatment is given priority despite the pregnant state.
  • A 32-year-old primigravida was diagnosed with invasive endocervical adenocarcinoma stage Ib1 at 8 weeks' gestation.
  • As the patient wanted to preserve the pregnancy, an amputation of the anterior cervix and retroperitoneal pelvic lymphadenectomy were performed.
  • In the absence of poor prognostic markers, we decided to adopt a conservative approach for cervical adenocarcinoma in a pregnant patient at 8 weeks' gestation.

  • [Title] Prevalence of human papillomavirus DNA in various histological subtypes of cervical adenocarcinoma: a population-based study.
  • The role of human papilloma virus (HPV) infection in the development of cervical carcinoma is well established, however, the prevalence of HPV DNA in cervical adenocarcinoma varies from study to study.
  • It appears to be caused by a number of factors, one of which is that cervical adenocarcinomas comprise a heterogeneous group of multiple subtypes.
  • To clarify the impact of HPV infection on the development of cervical adenocarcinoma with diverse histological subtypes, we performed a population-based study in Korean women from 15 different institutes for the status of HPV infection in adenocarcinoma of uterine cervix.
  • A total of 432 cervical adenocarcinomas from 1997 to 2001 were reviewed and classified according to the modified WHO classification.
  • The overall prevalence of HPV infection in cervical adenocarcinoma was 90%.
  • The infection of HPV 16 and/or HPV 18 accounted for 78% of HPV-positive adenocarcinomas.
  • The HPV DNA was rarely detected in minimal deviation adenocarcinoma.
  • In conclusion, HPV infection, mostly HPV 16 and HPV 18, is highly associated with most of the cervical adenocarcinomas, whereas endometrioid and villoglandular type have a different pattern of HPV infection status.
  • Minimal deviation adenocarcinoma does not seem to be related with HPV infection.

  • [Title] Comprehensive evaluation of CDX2 in invasive cervical adenocarcinomas: immunopositivity in the absence of overt colorectal morphology.
  • In addition to staining adenocarcinomas of the alimentary system, studies have demonstrated CDX2 positivity in a percentage of ovarian mucinous and endometrioid tumors, carcinoids, and some adenocarcinomas of other sites such as the urinary bladder, prostate, lung, and pancreas.
  • However, CDX2 immunostaining in cervical adenocarcinomas has not been examined in detail with comparison to important clinicopathologic characteristics including histopathologic subtype, tumor stage, and patient follow-up.
  • In this study of 81 invasive cervical adenocarcinomas, 24 of the cases (30%) demonstrated nuclear positivity.
  • 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] Primary adenocarcinoma of cervical esophagus.
  • Most upper esophageal malignancies are squamous cell carcinomas, rarely adenocarcinomas arising from Barrett's esophagus and very rarely adenocarcinomas from heterotopic gastric mucosa without evidence of Barrett's especially in the cervical part of the esophagus.
  • We report a case of adenocarcinoma of the polypoid type in the upper esophagus (cervical esophagus) arising from ectopic gastric mucosa, in a 60 year-old man who presented with progressive dysphagia.
  • Accurate diagnosis by esophagogram revealed a large mass in the cervical esophagus; CAT scan showed intraluminal mass at the level of thoracic inlet, esophagogastroscopy showed a fleshy polyp (3.2cm x 3.0cm) at 20 cm from the incisors with a biopsy confirming moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma with no evidence of Barrett's esophagus.
  • Through a left cervical approach and resection of medial third of clavicle, the tumor was removed by partial esophagectomy followed by lymph node dissection, and proved to be T1NOMO, stage I (AJCC staging 6th ed.).
  • It seems this tumor has a much better prognosis than adenocarcinomas arising from Barrett's.

  • OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to describe the sonographic characteristics of squamous cell cancer (SCC) and adenocarcinoma (AC) of the cervix using transvaginal ultrasound.
  • METHODS: Women with early stage cervical cancer undergoing transvaginal ultrasound examination before surgery were prospectively included.
  • At pathological examination, 34 women had tumors confined to the cervix, three had parametrial invasion and three had vaginal invasion.
  • Color Doppler signals were found in all cases of AC and in 90% (18/20) of cases of SCC, compared with most normal cervical tissue in which virtually no detectable vascularization was found.
  • This knowledge should be useful in the clinical evaluation of cervical tumors.

  • [Title] Cytology of cervical intraepithelial glandular lesions.
  • 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).
  • The value of cytology in the detection and differential diagnosis was assessed in 123 patients with definitive histologic diagnosis of glandular lesions (AIS, n = 13; GIL I, n = 11; and GIL II, n = 7), and glandular lesions associated with squamous component (AIS associated with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) or invasive squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), n = 58; GIL I or GIL II associated with CIN, n = 28; and GIL associated with microinvasive squamous carcinoma (MIC), n = 6).
  • 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.

  • [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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • HPV DNA detection in the ovarian tumors of 2 patients without known cervical disease led to discovery of occult cervical adenocarcinomas in those patients.
  • 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.

  • OBJECTIVE: To study P-cadherin aberrant expression as a possible marker for cervical adenocarcinomas in cytological samples.
  • METHODS: We studied P-cadherin immunoexpression in liquid-based cervical cytology samples of biopsy-proven cervical lesions.
  • RESULTS: We found a statistically significant correlation between P-cadherin expression and a cytological diagnosis of malignancy, either glandular or squamous (P < 0.0001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: We concluded that P-cadherin can be used to discriminate between malignant and benign cervical cytological specimens, but not to discriminate glandular from squamous lesions.

  • BACKGROUND: Since the introduction of the Pap smear screening, the incidence of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) has decreased significantly, but the incidence of adenocarcinoma (AC) relative to SCC has increased.
  • AIM: To compare the Pap smear history of patients with AC and SCC of the cervix.
  • METHODS: Patients for the study were identified from the database of Queensland Centre for Gynaecological Cancer.
  • Patients with AC and SCC were matched for age at diagnosis and International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage.
  • Data were collected upon the histological type of cancer, result of the most recent Pap smear, date and result of the Pap smear prior to the most recent Pap smear and symptoms.
  • The time between the most recent Pap smear and the diagnosis of cervical cancer was significantly shorter for patients with AC (P=0.01).
  • Thus, Pap smear prior to a diagnosis of AC is more likely than SCC false-negative and therefore not indicative of cervical cancer.
