uterine prolapse and cervical carcinoma

Joseph C Wildenberg, Benjamin L Yam, Jill E Langer, Lisa P Jones
The adult uterine cervix may exhibit a wide variety of pathologic conditions that include benign entities (eg, cervicitis, hyperplasia, nabothian cysts, cervical polyps, leiomyomas, endometriosis, and congenital abnormalities) as well as malignant lesions, particularly cervical carcinoma. In addition, lesions that arise in the uterine body may secondarily involve the cervix, such as endometrial carcinoma and prolapsed intracavitary masses. Many of these conditions can be identified and characterized at ultrasonography (US), which is considered the first-line imaging examination for the female pelvis...

Although uterine prolapse and carcinoma of the uterine cervix are not rare events, their association is very uncommon. The treatment of cervical cancer has been protocolled, but the management of uterovaginal prolapse associated with carcinoma of the cervix is not standardised and therapy strategies vary considerably among authors. Our case reports a 74-year-old patient, admitted to the emergency department with an ulcerated prolapsed uterus. Biopsy of the cervical lesion confirmed a squamous-cell carcinoma...

BACKGROUND: Radical parametrectomy is a technically challenging operation used for women found to have occult cervix cancer after a hysterectomy for benign reasons. A similar operation, radical vaginectomy, is rarely performed because of the its technical difficulty in getting adequate margins without an attached uterus. CASE REPORTS: A 41-year-old woman was found to have a presumed surgical Stage IB1 squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix at time of surgery for uterine prolapse...

BACKGROUND: Uterovaginal prolapse frequently occurs in postmenopausal women. Hysterectomy with pelvic floor repair is one of the frequently performed surgeries in treating women who have completed their family and are not particular about preserving menstrual function. These hysterectomy specimens are submitted for histopathological examination to confirm the diagnosis. AIMS: This study was conducted with the aim to evaluate the frequency of incidental histopathological findings in uteri removed for prolapse and assessing their clinical relevance...

Verrucous carcinoma of the female tract is rare. We present a case involving association of verrucous carcinoma of the cervix with uterine prolapse. A 86-year-old woman was admitted with postmenopausal vaginal bleeding. The gynecologic examination revealed the uterine prolapse with a exophytic tumorous mass (3 x 6 x 8 cm) on the cervix. A punch biopsy was taken from the tumor, which revealed coilocytotic and mild dysplastic changes in the squamous epithelium; invasion of the underlying stroma could not be evaluated...

Although uterine prolapse and carcinoma of the uterine cervix are not rare event, their association is very uncommon. An 86-year-old patient gravida 8, para 5 was admitted for vaginal bleeding from a uterine prolapse of 20 years of duration. On physical examination, a complete third-degree prolapsed uterus with an ulcerated lesion of 12 cm in maximum diameter involving both the anterior and posterior lips of the cervix was observed. Because of the poor performance status and high American Society of Anesthesiology scoring, the patient was admitted for a vaginal hysterectomy with upper vaginectomy in spinal anesthesia...

Gynecologic vasculitis (GynV) has been reported as part of systemic vasculitis (SGynV) and as single-organ (isolated gynecologic) vasculitis (IGynV). In the current study, we analyzed the clinical and histologic characteristics of patients with GynV and sought to identify features that differentiate the isolated from the systemic forms of the disease. We used pathology databases from our institution and an English-language literature search (PubMed) to identify affected patients with biopsy-proven GynV. Using a standardized format for data gathering and analysis, we recorded clinical manifestations, laboratory and histologic features, and surgical and medical therapies...
