endocervical adenocarcinoma in cervical cytology

Sunday 2 October 2016

Endocervical adenocarcinoma shows malignant features such as irregular nuclear contours and a greater degree of pleomorphism. Other hints may include squamous dysplasia, a history of dysplasia (LSIL/HSIL) and a relatively young age, which can also help to distinguish the lesion from endometrial adenocarcinoma, which tends to occur in older patients.
