Abstract

Uterine serous endometrial intraepithelial carcinoma (SEIC) is an immediate precursor of invasive carcinoma. The majority of stage IA SEICs are curable, but those with latent peritoneal metastasis and/or capillary lymphatics invasion may have poor prognoses Careful pathologic staging is thus needed to predict the risk of recurrence and to determine postoperative therapeutic strategies. A 71-year-old woman was hospitalized for the treatment of peritoneal carcinoma. She had undergone total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy due to SEIC (stage IA) at age 63 years, and had received medical check-ups every year since. Elevated serum CA125 (184 U/mL) was detected for the first time 8 years after surgery. A thorough workup revealed no potential primary lesion other than that in the peritoneum. Tumor reduction surgery was performed. Histologic analysis of the peritoneal lesion was high-grade serous carcinoma. The peritoneal carcinoma was diffusely immunostained for p53; thus, possible recurrence of SEIC was suspected. Tumor DNAs were microdissected from the uterine and peritoneal lesions and p53 mutation analysis was done. SEIC and peritoneal carcinomas had distinct p53 mutations that were mutually exclusive. The present case raised a concern about the difficulty of histologic staging for SEICs. Although SEICs confined to the uterine endometrium in most cases predict a good prognosis, microscopic metastasis to the peritoneum may not be detectable at hysterectomy. If secondary malignancies of a serous phenotype develop years later, comprehensive reexamination of SEIC is mandated, with the help of DNA analysis.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 07 December 2016.
All research outputs
#7,578,083
of 8,739,691 outputs
Outputs from Diagnostic Pathology
#558
of 703 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#242,867
of 299,307 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Diagnostic Pathology
#7
of 8 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,739,691 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 703 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.2. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 299,307 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 8 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
