A rare case of florid mesonephric hyperplasia (FMH) of the cervix found incidentally in the hysterectomy specimen of a 49-year-old woman was studied with light and electron microscopy as well as histochemistry and immunohistochemistry. A lack of architectural and cytologic atypia of the glands and tubules and a benign clinical course are consistent with a hyperplastic rather than neoplastic process. Direct histologic continuity between mesonephric duct remnants and hyperplastic glands with numerous cytotelolysosomes and lack of intracellular mucin and carcinoembryonic antigen are the features that distinguish FMH from minimal deviation adenocarcinoma of the endocervix.
