Primary Papillary Serous Carcinoma of Cervix: A Rare Variant of Cervical Malignancy
Papillary serous carcinoma of the uterine cervix is a very rare tumor, and is a recently described variant of cervical Adenocarcinoma. It is an aggressive tumor with unpredictable course and poor prognosis. The incidence of cervical Adenocarcinoma is 5-15%. This variant accounts for less than 50 cases in literature, has bimodal age distribution with one peak occurring less than 40 years and other occurring greater than 65 years age groups. Here with we present a 53 years old female presented with severe low backache and lump abdomen of 4 months duration. Per vaginal examination showed endophytic growth high up in the cervix. Pap smear and Cervical biopsy done. Histopathological examination of cervical biopsy revealed Papillary Serous Adenocarcinoma. Later we received hysterectomy specimen with regional lymph nodes , which showed tumor limited to endocervix .
