This study includes 110 patients treated surgically for stage I squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix. The prognostic significances of mitotic activity, stromal inflammatory and eosinophilic reactions were studied. The 5-year survival rate varied from 75.0% to 93.3% and pelvic lymph node metastases (PLNM) varied from 23.0% to 31.2% according to degree of these variables. None of these pathological parameters was found to be a significant predictor of pelvic lymph node metastases and 5-year… CONTINUE READING
