endometrial serous carcinomas

Wednesday 18 March 2020

Examples

- serous endometrial intraepithelial carcinoma

  • Minimal uterine serous cancer (MUSC) or serous endometrial intraepithelial carcinoma (EIC) has been described in 1998.
  • The World health Organization (WHO) Classification favors the term serous EIC.
  • Although serous EIC is confined to the uterine endometrium at initial histology diagnosis, a significant number of patients could have distal metastasis at diagnosis, without symptoms.
  • Serous EIC is considered as being the precursor of uterine serous cancer (USC), but pure serous EIC also has an aggressive behavior similar to USC.
