Abstract

Adenoid basal cell carcinoma of uterine cervix is very rare disease and is common to postmenopausal women. Adenoid basal cell carcinoma does not make certain type of lesion. So adenoid basal cell carcinoma is hard to find. Differentiation between adenoid basal cell carcinoma from adenoid cystic carcinoma is significant because prognosis of Adenoid basal carcinoma is less severe. We report patient who underwent hysterectomy under the diagnosis of pyometra. She was diagnosed with adenoid basal cell carcinoma by biopsy after surgery.
