Association between developmental steps in the organogenesis of the uterine cervix and locoregional progression of cervical cancer: a prospective clinicopathological analysis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Our previous work provided evidence that early cervical cancer is locally confined to the Müllerian compartment that develops in women from the embryonic paramesonephric-mesonephric complex. We aimed to investigate if the concept of tumour permeation within ontogenetic domains is also valid for tumour progression and advanced disease. METHODS… (More)
