Neuroendocrine differentiation in müllerian neoplasms. An immunohistochemical study of a "pure" endometrial small-cell carcinoma and a mixed müllerian tumor containing small-cell carcinoma.

Abstract

Two neoplasms of the endometrium exhibiting histologic features of small cell carcinoma (SCC) were studied immunohistochemically for the presence of antigens indicative of neuroendocrine differentiation. The first case, a pure SCC, was positive for neuron-specific enolase (NSE), Leu-7, and chromogranin. The second case, a mixed müllerian tumor, had an extensive SCC component; the latter element was reactive for NSE and Leu-7. The first patient has had an unexpectedly long survival, while the second patient died with multiple distant metastases, containing only SCC.
