CONCLUSIONS: Based on endometrial biopsy results, clinical and ultrasound characteristics, the individual risk of lymph node metastases in women with endometrial cancer can be reliably estimated before surgery. The model is superior to risk classification by endometrial biopsy alone or in combination with ultrasound. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Rationale: Uterine adenosarcoma (UA) with sarcomatous overgrowth (ASSO) is a rare and aggressive disease. Herein, wereported the case of a young patient with advanced uterine ASSO. Patients concerns: A 29-year-old woman with the diagnoses of endometrial polyp and adenomyosis underwent hysteroscopic endometrial polypectomy for the giant endometrial polyp. Postoperative regular ultrasound scan indicated thickened endometriumand an ill-defined mass with continuous enlargement in the myometrium of the posterior wall of the uterus, which was considered as an adenomyoma. Two years after hysteroscopy, she was re-admitted due...

CONCLUSIONS: In the hands of experienced ultrasound examiners SA was superior to taking measurements for prediction of deep MI and CSI of endometrial cancer especially in grade 1-2 tumors. The mathematical models for prediction of high-risk cancer performed as expected. The best strategy to predict high-risk endometrial cancer was either to simply combine SA with biopsy grade or to use the subjective 2-step strategy, both having an accuracy of 80%.

We report a case of misdiagnosed endometrial cancer by D&C, but with a positive cytopathological finding. Following that, a meta-analysis including 4,179 patients of endometrial diseases with cyto-histopathological results was performed to assess the value of the endometrial cytological method in endometrial cancer diagnosis. The pooled sensitivity and specificity of the cytological method in detecting endometrial atypical hyperplasia or cancer was 0.91[95% confidence interval (CI) 0.74–0.97] and 0.96 (95% CI 0.90–0.99), respectively. The pooled positive likelihood ratio and negative likelihood ratio was 25.4 (...
