Papillary squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix
"Papillary squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix (PSCC) is a rare and distinct form of cervical carcinoma.Here we present two cases that highlight the diagnostic and clinical challenges of PSCC.
Case- 1
A 50-year-old woman found to have carcinoma on a routine pap-smear. The patient was diagnosed with PSCC on colposcopic biopsy and underwent a radical hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and pelvic lymph node dissection. Her final pathology demonstrated PSCC with no evidence of stromal invasion. At her 3-month follow up visit, she was noted to have a tumor recurrence at the vaginal cuff, again with no stromal invasion. She is currently undergoing definitive radiation therapy with sensitizing cisplatin.
Case- 2
An 82-year-old woman presented with post-menopausal bleeding and was found to have an exophytic mass. Biopsies were taken and showed PSCC with no stromal invasion identified. She underwent a total laparoscopic hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Final pathology indicated no invasion. She is currently being followed for persistent vaginal dysplasia."...
