AIM: The aim of this study was to investigate clinical factors associated with abnormal pathologies of uterine masses resected via hysteroscopy. METHODS: Women who underwent hysteroscopic surgery for presumptive diagnoses of abnormal endometrial or endocervical masses, such as polyps or leiomyomas on ultrasonography, between January 2012 and April 2015, were enrolled. Clinical and pathologic data were retrospectively reviewed. RESULTS: Among 189 patients, pathologic diagnoses of the uterine mass were abnormal in 172 (91...

In recent years, a number of benign and malignant cervical glandular lesions exhibiting gastric differentiation have been described but premalignant gastric-type lesions have not been well characterized. We report a series of 9 cases of a rare form of cervical adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS) distinguished by gastric and sometimes intestinal differentiation and lack of association with human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. The lesions occurred in women aged 25 to 73 years (mean age 51 y). All cases were located at (or just proximal to) the cervical transformation zone and there was extension to the lower uterine segment in 3 cases, 2 of which also involved the endometrium...

Objective To evaluate the diagnostic utility of the p16(ink4a) protein expression as a marker for adenocarcinoma of the cervix. Methods In a cross-sectional study, p16(ink4a) expression was evaluated in 30 cervical biopsies from patients diagnosed with invasive adenocarcinoma from 2 reference clinics in Brazil, and compared with 18 biopsies of endocervical polyps (control cases). The performance of the tests for p16(ink4a) was evaluated using a conventional contingency table, and the Kappa (κ) index was used to evaluate the agreement of the marker with the tissue diagnosis...

A 49-year-old female from China was referred to our hospital after endocervical polypectomy. Twenty years before admission, after the birth of her first child, an intrauterine device (IUD) had been inserted due to the one-child policy in China. She had noticed abnormal vaginal bleeding with a foul smell 3 years before admission. Then the IUD was removed and a polyp was found at the IUD contact site. Two months before admission, endocervical polypectomy was performed. Lymphoma was suspected by histological examination and she was referred to our hospital...

INTRODUCTION: In response to the growing body of evidence that simulation is a satisfactory way to instruct procedural skills, we developed an innovative model to teach common gynecologic procedures such as cervical cancer screening, cervical polyp removal, intrauterine device removal, and endometrial biopsy. The objectives of this study were to describe the construction of the model and to assess participants' satisfaction and confidence in applying the learning objectives to their clinical practice...

OBJECTIVES: This study reviews occasions when cervical polyps removed in an outpatient setting proved not to be cervical polyps histologically. We aimed to identify any anatomical and/or clinical characteristics that predict 'incorrect diagnosis" in general practice. METHODS: A retrospective study of consecutive 345 patients who were initially diagnosed with cervical polyps based on a routine gynecological examination in an outpatient setting was included. After histopathological examination, the patients were divided into 2 groups: those with cervical (correct diagnosis, n = 307) and falsely diagnosed with cervical polyps (FDP, n = 38)...

Endocervical polyps are common benign lesions which rarely result in diagnostic problems, although a variety of alterations occasionally complicate histologic interpretation. We report an unusual, and not previously described, finding of florid "epidermal" metaplasia with keratinization and extensive formation of skin appendages structures (sebaceous and sweat glands and hair follicles) within an endocervical polyp. The features closely resembled an epidermal inclusion cyst. We speculate on the possible pathogenesis of this rare phenomenon and review unusual findings in endocervical polyps...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the content of Al, Cd, Cr, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb, and Zn in human endometrium (END), endocervix (ECX), and endometrial (END-P) and endocervical (ECX-P) polyps in relation to histologic image and female demographic characteristics and habits. DESIGN: Tissues were collected during curettage of the uterine cavity, subjected to histopathologic examination, digested, and analyzed with the use of a microwave induced nitrogen plasma atomic emission spectrometer...

Malignant mixed müllerian tumor (MMMT) and müllerian/mesodermal adenosarcoma are 2 of the most common mixed müllerian tumors of the female genital tract. MMMT is a biphasic neoplasm, composed of morphologically malignant epithelial and stromal components. MMMT should be distinguished from endometrioid adenocarcinoma with spindle cell elements, "dedifferentiated" endometrioid carcinoma, and combined adenocarcinoma and neuroendocrine carcinoma. Adenosarcoma is also biphasic; it is composed of morphologically benign or low-grade appearing epithelial components and malignant stromal components...

This paper presents a clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical report of 2 gastrointestinal-type tumors, one in the endometrium and the other in the cervix. Both showed extensive invasion into the pelvic structures with acellular mucin, identical to pseudomyxoma but in the absence of appendiceal or ovarian tumors. Case 1 was an 81-yr-old female with a Stage III endometrial gastrointestinal-type adenocarcinoma who had had an endometrial polyp with intestinal metaplasia 4 years previously. Case 2 was a 68-yr-old female with Stage IIIB endocervical gastrointestinal-type adenocarcinoma...

Endocervical stromal sarcoma (ECSS) is a very rare uterine sarcoma. The most common presentation is pelvic mass and vaginal bleeding. The mainstay of treatment is surgery. There is no consensus on the adjuvant treatment. Relapses are usually in the pelvic and abdominal regions. To a lesser extent, lung, liver and bone metastases may be seen. A 46-year-old woman had total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH) with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO) performed due to endometrial polyp and leiomyoma. Six months after the TAH-BSO, she was admitted to the hospital with cough and hemoptysis...

Atypical polypoid adenomyomas (APAMs) are rare uterine tumors that occur predominantly in premenopausal women, with less than 250 cases reported so far, worldwide. They may recur after treatment, and they may coexist with, or precede development of an endometrial adenocarcinoma. For this reason cases managed with conservative surgery or medical therapies require long-term follow-up. We report the case of a 41 years old nulliparous patient who during a diagnostic hysteroscopy was found with an endocervical atypical polypoid adenomyoma (APAM)...

INTRODUCTION: Benign, especially polypoid, lesions of the cervix are common in everyday work. Rare tumors of this region are vascular ones, particularly capillary and/or cavernous hemangiomas. Cervical hemangiomas are especially rare, usually asymptomatic and only one third of the cases is clinically manifested as vaginal bleeding, polyps, etc. CASE REPORT: We reported a 54-year-old postmenopausal female patient who had undergone conization due to high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (H-SIL)...

A 38-yr-old woman, with a previous history of low grade squamous intraepithelial lesion in the cervix, presented with heavy menstrual bleeding. At hysteroscopy, a fundal polyp was removed from the right cornu which displayed many glands lined by atypical, mitotically active epithelium with features characteristic of endocervical adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS) of intestinal subtype. Subsequent cervical liquid-based cytology and colposcopically directed biopsies revealed no causative lesion, but residual PreservCyt from the ThinPrep vial tested positive for high risk HPV type other than HPV 16 and 18...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Low-grade endometrial sarcoma (LGESS) has a favorable prognosis after standard surgical treatment. The conservative fertility-sparing treatments in young patients with LGESS have been reported; however, the role of conservative therapy is not well defined. STUDY DESIGN/PATIENT AND METHODS: A 31-year-old nulliparous woman was diagnosed with LGESS after resection of a cervical polyp with resection margin positive for malignancy. She underwent fertility-sparing surgery including laparoscopic pelvic lymph node dissection, hysteroscopic endometrial polypectomy, endocervical curettage, and photodynamic therapy (PDT) on the endometrium and uterine cervix...
