Abstract

The author classified cervical cancer into three groups: epidermoid carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, and an intermediate group. Most of the cases in the intermediate group have more characteristic features of epidermoid carcinoma than adenocarcinoma. These tumors were dealt with as intermediate group A and subclassified into three types according to their histomorphology: cribri, lobular, and comedo type. During 1966-1979, 164 cases were treated by surgery and 430 by radiation. The author studied the clinicopathological aspects of these three types: size of primary lesion, degree of local spread and lymph node metastasis of tumor and prognosis. The characteristic features of each type were as follows: 1) Cribri type: The incidence was 8.9%. The lesion size was smaller with low degree of local spread and lymph node metastasis. The prognosis was good. 2) Lobular type: The incidence was 35.9%. The degree of local spread and lymph node metastasis was intermediate between cribri and comedo. 3) Comedo type: The incidence was 27.8%. The lesion size was greater with high degree of local spread and lymph node metastasis. The radiosensitivity and the prognosis in radiation was markedly poor.
