Adenoid Basal Carcinoma and Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma of the Uterine Cervix: A Study of 2 Cases


Adenoid basal carcinoma and adenoid cystic carcinoma of the uterine cervix are rare tumors that have often been regarded as a single entity. But adenoid basal and adenoid cystic carcinomas of the cervix differ from each other in their histology, treatment, and prognosis. We experienced 2 cases of these neoplasms, with 1 case in each category. Whereas adenoid basal carcinoma is a slow-growing, locally invasive lesion amenable to simply hysterectomy, adenoid cystic carcinoma is an aggressive tumor associated with regional lymph node involvement and late distant metastases. This study reviews the literature and formulates a program for the management of these rare lesions.
