Endometrioid Carcinoma - Villoglandular type

WP

Definition : This subtype of endometrioid adenocarcinoma consists of finger-like projections lined by tall columnar cells with bland nuclei. Focal villoglandular changes are seen in almost 25% of endometrioid carcinomas. Villoglandular variants have to be distinguished from the more aggressive papillary serous carcinoma.
