Mucinous and microglandular adenocarcinomas of the endometrium (MUC-AD and MIGL-AD, respectively) are uncommon types of endometrial cancer. When present in endometrial biopsy or curettage, these tumors may display a unique microglandular architectural pattern mimicking benign microglandular hyperplasia (MGH) of the endocervix. We compared the immunoprofile of MUC-AD and MIGL-AD with that of MGH and benign endocervical glands to identify the markers that would reliably separate these… CONTINUE READING
