Ovarian atypical proliferative (borderline) mucinous tumors of gastrointestinal and seromucinous types are considered subtypes within the mucinous tumor category despite the presence of distinctive clinicopathologic features that seromucinous tumors share with pure serous tumors. Immunophenotypic differences have not been extensively investigated. Immunohistochemical studies were performed to compare the expression patterns of cytokeratins 7 and 20 (CK7, CK 20), estrogen and progesterone… CONTINUE READING
