ADENOID BASAL CARCINOMA OF CERVIX - REPORT OF A RARE CASE AND LITERATURE REVIEW
Dr. Priyanka Anand*, Dr. Poonam Sahni
Adenoid basal carcinoma is a rare tumor comprising of both basal and glandular elements with an overall incidence of less than 1% of Cervical Adenocarcinomas. Persistent Human papilloma virus infection is suggested as an etiological agent. We present a case in a 48 year old post-menopausal woman. As it is a rare variant, its differentiation from other other aggressive tumors of similar morphology such as cervical adenoid cystic carcinoma needs consideration because they have an adverse prognosis.
