Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Cervix with Intraepithelial Extension to the Endometrium: A Case Report.
Bohng Hee Kim
ABSTRACT
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the cervix with intraepithelial extension to the endometrium is a rare event, accounting for about 0.7% of all cervical SCC. Endometrial lesion has been considered as a direct extension of cervical cancer in the early reports, and this was confirmed in a recent molecular study. I report here on the case of a 56-year-old woman who had stage IIB SCC of the cervix with extension, in an in situ fashion, to the entire endometrium. HPV type 16 was detected via PCR in both the cervical and endometrial tumors.
