Abstract

A 49-year-old woman was admitted with abnormal vaginal bleeding of 5 months duration. Hysteroscopy showed polypoid formations in the uterine cavity. Biopsy of a polyp revealed an anaplastic malignant tumor. A total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and iliac lymphadenectomy were performed. A polypoid soft white-yellowish tumor originated from the endometrium. The biopsies plus sections of the operative specimen were histologically similar and displayed typical featuresof yolk sac tumor (YST) with tubulo-papillary pattern. Schiller-Duvalbodies and PAS-positive, diastase-resistant, hyaline droplets were present. There was no neoplastic involvement of the cervix, ovaries, andiliac lymph nodes. Tumor cells and hyaline globules were strongly immunoreactive with a-fetoprotein antibody. The patient refused chemotherapy and was subsequently treated by external radiotherapy. The patientremained free of disease 28 months after surgery. There are only fouradditional cases of primary YST of the endometrium reported in literature. On the basis df the small number of cases reported, such tumors appear to have clinical and pathological features similar to their ovarian counterparts, (C) 1998 Academic Press.
