A Case of Postirradiation Uterine Papillary Serous Carcinoma

Abstract

Uterine papillary serous carcinoma is a morphologically distinct variant of endometrial carcinoma that is associated with an aggressive behavior with rapid progression and high recurrence, and poor response to salvage treatment. The most common type of malignancy developing in the uterus after radiation therapy is the malignant mixed mullerian tumor, however, the papillary serous carcinomas have rarely been reported.Here we report a case of uterine papillary serous carcinoma which had developed 7 years after radiation therapy for invasive cervical cancer.
