Case Report

Adenoid Basal Carcinoma: A First Case Report and Literature Review from the Mainland of P.R. China

Haifeng Qiu*

Adenoid basal carcinoma is a rare neoplasm of the uterine cervix, which mostly occurred among postmenopausal women[1]. Firstly, Baggish and Woodruff described it in 1966 [2].

However, maybe due to the linguistic problem,these data did not take cases from the mainland of P.R. China into consideration. Owning the largest population of the world (more than 1.3 billion), we believe it is worthy to study the epidemiologic and clinicopathologic features of adenoid basal carcinoma from China. Herein, we report a case of adenoid basal carcinoma in our hospital. Simultaneously, literatures for all other reports of this rare carcinoma in China are reviewed.
