Endocervical gland atypia secondary to Arias-Stella change.

Author information

Department of Pathology, University of Florida College of Medicine, Jacksonville.


Arias-Stella change of the endocervix is relatively common if a systematic search can be made. However, the change has rarely been described in cervical/endocervical biopsy material. Five additional biopsy cases of the Arias-Stella change of the endocervix are documented, briefly discussed, and compared with other endocervical gland abnormalities. The Arias-Stella change of the endocervix is important to recognize because of its atypical appearance that, in this location, can be mistaken for premalignant, malignant, or other glandular abnormalities, especially if the pathologist is not aware of the patient's pregnancy.
