Abstract

In spite of many references to carcinoma arising from endometriosis at extrauterine sites, there are few documented cases of carcinoma developing in association with adenomyosis. We present 2 rare cases of adenocarcinoma arising from adenomyosis. The relationship between prior frequent estrogen use and carcinogenesis and the possible effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy are reviewed.
