Endometrioid carcinoma of endometrium

Endometrioid carcinoma of endometrium

Endometrioid adenocarcinoma of the endometrium is a malignant epithelial tumor. It appears on a background of endometrial hyperplasia, in hyperestrogenism. Tumor cells are atypical and form irregular glands, with multiple lumens, stratification. The stroma is reduced, producing the "back to back" aspect of the tumor glands. The myometrium is not infiltrated. (H&E, ob. x10)
