squamous cell carcinoma, adenosquamous carcinoma, mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinoma, high-grade neuroendocrine carcinoma and undifferentiated carcinoma, were excluded.
Clear cell adenosquamous carcinoma of the cervix: a case report with discussion of the differential diagnosis.
Study participants were women with a mean age of 46 years with stage IA1, IA2, or IB1 cervical cancer, with most (91.9%) having IB1 disease, and either squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, or adenosquamous carcinoma. They were recruited from 33 centers worldwide between June 2008 and June 2017.
Most patients (67 [78.8%]) had squamous cell carcinoma while 18 (21.2%) had adenocarcinoma or adenosquamous carcinoma. Only over half (45 [2.9%]) had tumors smaller than 4 cm, while 40 (47.1%) had tumors 4 cm or larger.
Vulvar adenosquamous carcinoma arising in a hidradenoma papilliferum, with rapidly fatal outcome: case report.
Inclusion criteria were (a) biopsy-documented invasive cervical cancer by a loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) or a cone biopsy or punch biopsy; at least 7 days after a biopsy, MRI was performed to prevent false-positive findings due to biopsy inflammation, (b) clinical FIGO stage IA, IB, or IIA, (c) histology of squamous cell carcinoma or adenocarcinoma or adenosquamous carcinoma, (d) no medical or surgical contraindications to radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND) with or without paraaortic lymph node sampling (PALS) and dissection (PLND), (f) having an Eastern Cooperative OncologyGroup (ECOG) performance status of 0-1, and (g) provided informed consent.
In contrast, 75.8% of GCC tumors were tubular adenocarcinoma; the remainder were mucinous carcinoma (16.2%), adenosquamous carcinoma (4%), small-cell undifferentiated carcinoma (n = 2, 2%), squamous cell carcinoma (n = 1, 1%), or a tumor of neuroendocrine phenotype (n =1,1%).
Of these patients, there have been only a total of 40 cases of penile metastases from primary lung cancer with the following histopathologic incidences: squamous cell carcinoma (63%), adenocarcinoma (18%), and a single reported case of adenosquamous carcinoma (ASC) [3].
Further multivariate analysis showed that histology (HR = 3.4, 95% CI = 1.5-7.8 for adenosquamous carcinoma and HR = 6.9, 95% CI = 2.8-17.1 for other cell type; p = 0.001), DSI (HR = 2.5, 95% CI = 1.5-4.4; p = 0.001), and LN status (HR = 3.0, 95% CI = 1.4-6.4; p = 0.013) were identified as independent poor prognostic factors for DFS (Table 4).
The etiology of adenosquamous carcinoma is unclear.
Most common subtype is the conventional squamous cell carcinoma, accounting for 90% of the cases, while other relatively common types are Verrucous carcinoma, Papillary squamous cell carcinoma, Basaloid squamous cell carcinoma, Acantholytic squamous cell carcinoma, Spindle cell carcinoma and Adenosquamous carcinoma.7
