Aberrant nuclear beta-catenin expression in the spindle or corded cells in so-called corded and hyalinized endometrioid carcinomas. Another critical role of the unique morphological feature.


Corded and hyalinized endometrioid carcinoma (CHEC), showing spindle and/or corded (SPICO) cells often in the background of hyalinized stroma, is a rare variant of uterine endometrioid carcinomas. The aim of our study was to explore the status of cell-adhesion molecules (beta-catenin, E-cadherin) in CHECs and to survey whether immunostains for beta-catenin… (More)
