    The American journal of surgical pathology
  • 1 March 2010
TLDR
It has been proposed that serous tumors arise from the implantation of epithelium (benign or malignant) from the fallopian tube and preliminary data suggest that mucinous and transitional (Brenner) tumors arose from transitional-type epithelial nests at the tubal-mesothelial junction by a process of metaplasia.
Prevalence of Human Papillomavirus in Cervical Cancer: a Worldwide Perspective
TLDR
The results confirm the role of genitalHPVs, which are transmitted sexually, as the central etiologic factor in cervical cancer worldwide and suggest that most genital HPVs are associated with cancer, at least occasionally.
Disseminated peritoneal adenomucinosis and peritoneal mucinous carcinomatosis. A clinicopathologic analysis of 109 cases with emphasis on distinguishing pathologic features, site of origin,
TLDR
The term DPAM should be used to diagnose the histologically benign peritoneal lesions associated with ruptured appendiceal mucinous adenomas and those that are pathologically identical but lack a demonstrable appendicesal adenoma, which should be designated PMCA because they have recognizably different pathologic features and a significantly worse prognosis.
The 2001 Bethesda System: terminology for reporting results of cervical cytology.
TLDR
The 2001 Bethesda System terminology reflects important advances in biological understanding of cervical neoplasia and cervical screening technology.
Prevalence of human papillomavirus in cervical cancer: a worldwide perspective. International biological study on cervical cancer (IBSCC) Study Group.
TLDR
The results confirm the role of genitalHPVs, which are transmitted sexually, as the central etiologic factor in cervical cancer worldwide and suggest that most genital HPVs are associated with cancer, at least occasionally.
