Abstract

A case of mesonephric adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix arising in florid mesonephric hyperplasia is reported. The reviewed literature contained many cases of cervical "mesonephroma" but only a few of these were considered to be demonstrably of mesonephric origin. These tumors were usually associated with proliferating mesonephric remnants in the cervix. Similar tubuloglandular mesonephric proliferations without formation of a frankly malignant tumor have also been described in the cervix, most recently as florid mesonephric hyperplasia. This latter entity appears to be benign. Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) was focally positive in this cervical adenocarcinoma, suggesting that CEA may not be useful in distinguishing this variant from the more common mullerian adenocarcinoma of the cervix.
