One thousand consecutive cases of surgically proven endometriosis were reviewed to evaluate the frequency and types of pelvic cancers that were associated with ovarian and extraovarian endometriosis. The frequency and types of histologic abnormalities present in the eutopic endometrium when cancers were noted in endometriosis were also evaluated. In the(More)
BACKGROUND Before 1971, several million women were exposed in utero to diethylstilbestrol (DES) given to their mothers to prevent pregnancy complications. Several adverse outcomes have been linked to such exposure, but their cumulative effects are not well understood. METHODS We combined data from three studies initiated in the 1970s with continued(More)
Forty-eight cases of primary insular carcinoid of the ovary were analyzed from a clinicopathologic viewpoint. Sixteen (33%) were associated with preoperative clinical evidence of the carcinoid syndrome. At operation only one ovary was usually enlarged, but in 16% the contralateral ovary was also enlarged by either a dermoid cyst or a mucinous cystadenoma or(More)
Eighteen cases of primary trabecular carcinoid of the ovary were analyzed from a clinicopathologic viewpoint. The patients ranged in age from 24 to 74 years and presented with symptoms of an ovarian mass; none had the carcinoid syndrome. Although the carcinoid always proved to be unilateral, the contralateral ovary was sometimes enlarged by a dermoid cyst.(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to identify similarities and differences in epidemiologic and surgicopathologic staging results for papillary serous (PS) and clear cell (CC) endometrial cancers compared with endometrioid (EM) carcinoma of the endometrium. METHODS Clinical and surgicopathologic data were retrospectively collected on 574 clinical stage(More)
Endometrial "hyperplasia," as currently diagnosed, includes the changes caused by an abnormal hormonal state and those caused by a separate category of monoclonal premalignant disease. The appearance of the disease in these 2 functional categories is discontinuous, permitting more specific diagnosis of the condition using the terms "benign endometrial(More)
To determine whether Black women with symptoms of uterine corpus cancer had longer times from symptom recognition to initial medical consultation than did White women in the United States, 331 newly diagnosed patients living in Atlanta (GA), New Orleans (LA), and San Francisco/Oakland (CA) during 1985–87 were interviewed to collect information on symptoms,(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to compare the accuracy of disease progression prediction of the molecular genetics and morphometry-based Endometrial Intraepithelial Neoplasia (EIN) and World Health Organization 1994 (WHO94) classification systems in patients with endometrial hyperplasias. METHODS A multicenter, multivariate analysis was(More)
Five thousand seven hundred seventy-eight adenomas or adenomas containing carcinoma from 3215 patients were examined by routine histologic methods for the presence of epithelial metaplasias. Three forms of epithelial metaplasia were encountered: squamous cell metaplasia (0.44%), Paneth cell metaplasia (0.20%), and melanocytic metaplasia (0.017%). In several(More)
