OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic significance of steroid hormone receptors in endometrial carcinoma using immunohistochemical staining for progesterone receptor (PR) and estrogen receptor (ER). METHODS We evaluated the correlation between PR/ER immunohistochemistry and age, clinical stage, tumor grade, myometrial tumor invasion, and disease-free survival in a series of 92 cases of endometrioid adenocarcinoma. RESULTS Fifty (54.4%) endometrial carcinomas were PR… CONTINUE READING
