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 o
r 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)
