An extraordinary case of gastric-type endocervical adenocarcinoma

Gastric adenocarcinoma of the cervix (GAC) represents a rare mucinous endocervical cancer not related to human papillomavirus (HPV)

GAC has been found to comprise approximately 10% of cervical adenocarcinomas internationally. As more cases were identified,

GAC was further classified into subtypes along with poorly differentiated rather than well-differentiated (also known as mucinous or malignant adenoma). 

This cancer coined the term "gastric" subtype due to its similarity to the pancreatobiliary and gastric tissue lining.

With limited statistics and comparable histologic and genetic capabilities of GAC, this malignancy poses a task for clinicians 

The purpose of this article is to present an extraordinary type of gastric adenocarcinoma with a completely unique starting point web page

Endocervical adenocarcinoma (ACE) causes 20-25% of all cervical malignancies, and its frequency has been increasing in recent years

 with the most common type being identified as the "typical type" [1,2]. The second most common type is gastric subtype adenocarcinoma (GAC)
