Ovarian squamous cell carcinoma which metastasized 8 years after cervical conization for early microinvasive cervical cancer: a case report.
ABSTRACT Squamous cell cervical carcinoma that metastasized to the ovary is common in patients with bulky tumors or locally advanced disease; however, ovarian squamous cell carcinoma that metastasized after cervical conization surgery for early microinvasive uterine cervical carcinoma is very rare. We present a case of ovarian squamous cell carcinoma that metastasized 8 years after cervical conization surgery for early microinvasive cervical carcinoma. She had no sign of recurrence in the uterine cervix. We detected human papillomavirus type 16 DNA in both cervical tissue and ovarian tissue, suggesting that ovarian squamous cell carcinoma is derived from microinvasive cervical cancer. Although there are very few cases of early microinvasive squamous cell carcinoma that metastasized to the ovary with delayed recurrence, we should pay attention strictly not only to the cervical condition but also to the ovarian condition on regular post-operative follow-up.

ABSTRACT: During the period from 1970 to 1985, 706 patients with cervical cancer of stage 0 and Ia were treated by a simple hysterectomy without oophorectomy. In 326 patients with invasive carcinoma in stage Ib to stage III, who were treated by a radical hysterectomy from 1977 to 1985, histological examinations were performed to detect ovarian metastasis. A total of 674 autopsy specimens were obtained from the Annual of the Pathological Autopsy Cases in Japan. (Japanese Pathological Society, 1965 to 1978). Follow-up observations on stage 0 and stage Ia revealed no recurrence in the ovaries. In invasive cases of epidermoid carcinoma (stage Ib to stage III), no ovarian metastases were detected, despite discovery of metastases to the pelvic lymph node in 21.6% of the cases. Conversely, in the cases of cervical adenocarcinoma (pure adenocarcinoma and mixed carcinoma), 6 of 48 cases (12.5%) showed ovarian metastases. Ovarian metastases were found in 22 of 77 (28.6%) autopsy cases of adenocarcinoma, but in only 104 of 597 (17.4%) cases of epidermoid carcinoma. This finding is statistically significant (P less than 0.02). Both corpus invasion and metastasis to the ovaries were found in 20 of 54 cases (37.0%). This rate was significantly higher than the rate of ovarian metastasis in cases without corpus invasion (P less than 0.001).Gynecologic Oncology 12/1987; 28(3):255-61. · 3.93 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: A case of squamous intraepithelial neoplasia in an ovarian cyst in association with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) III is described. In view of the association of human papillomavirus (HPV) and CIN, the possibility that HPV infection could be associated with similar changes in the ovary was postulated. The HPV genome was shown in formalin-fixed tissue of the cervical lesion by nonisotopic in situ hybridization (NISH) and by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). However, HPV could not be shown in the ovarian lesion by NISH or PCR. On the basis of these findings there appears to be no association between HPV infection and squamous intraepithelial neoplasia in an ovarian cyst.Human Pathlogy 04/1995; 26(3):344-7. · 2.84 Impact Factor
