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...

REVIEW
Robert A Soslow
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...

Müllerian adenosarcoma (MA) is a mixed Müllerian neoplasm composed of malignant stroma and benign epithelium. Endometrial and endocervical polyps are common entities in surgical pathology practice and most can be readily distinguished from MA; however, some have overlapping features, causing diagnostic confusion. In this study, we examined uterine polyps falling short of the diagnosis of MA quantitatively, qualitatively, or both. Our aims were to (1) characterize formally the morphologic features of atypical uterine polyps and (2) determine clinical outcome...

We report herein a 53-year-old Japanese female case of polypoid adenomyoma of endocervical type. A sessile 16 mm sized cervical polyp, hard in consistency, was surgically removed. Histologically, the polypoid lesion was composed of smooth muscle bundles and scattered benign-looking endocervical glands. The mucin was diffusely alcianophilic. Immunohistochemically, some mucous glands were positive for MUC1 (CA15-3) and MUC5AC, and the other small glands were immunoreactive for MUC6. MUC2 and mucin characteristic of gastric gland mucous cells (M-GGMC-1 or HIK1083) were negative...

Schistosomiasis mansoni is found in different endemic areas of Brazil. It is a serious public health problem in Brazil and worldwide. Ectopic forms of the disease may affect the female reproductive system, representing a rare type of Schistosoma mansoni infection. A 26-year-old patient complained of vaginal discharge, dyspareunia and pain on palpation of the hypogastrium. Gynecological examination revealed an endocervical polyp. A biopsy was performed. Under microscopy, several granulomas surrounding degenerate and viable eggs of Schistosoma mansoni were seen...

BACKGROUND: Adenomyosis is one of the most common, yet under diagnosed, underlying cause of abnormal uterine bleeding. We aimed to evaluate the presence of adenomyosis among the patients who presented with abnormal uterine bleeding. METHODS: This was a retrospective study carried out on hysterectomy specimens of subjects who presented to the gynaecologist with the complaint of abnormal uterine bleeding not responding to conservative treatment. Excluded are the hysterectomies performed for malignant pelvic neoplasms and hysterectomy following labour for postpartum haemorrhage...

Microglandular hyperplasia (MGH) is a benign proliferation of endocervical glands with relatively uniform columnar or cuboidal nuclei, and rare to absent mitoses. Endometrial adenocarcinomas with mucinous differentiation or a microglandular pattern can closely mimic MGH, often resulting in a diagnostic dilemma in small biopsy specimens. Rare unusual morphologic features-mild to moderate nuclear atypia, solid or reticular growth pattern, hobnail and signet ring cells-have been previously reported in MGH. We present 9 cases of unusual, mitotically active-between 5 and 11 mitotic figures per 10 HPF-MGH, all of which presented as endocervical polyps and had morphologic features otherwise typical of MGH...

OBJECTIVE: To clarify which types of cervical polyp removed during the first and second trimester are associated with the risk of spontaneous abortion and preterm delivery. METHODS: Pregnant females who underwent attempted polypectomy of cervical polyps during pregnancy and delivered singleton infants between 2005 and 2011 were evaluated. The clinical courses and outcomes of preterm delivery after polypectomy stratified according to the pathologic diagnosis of the polyps were retrospectively reviewed...
