The aim of the present study was to analyze the relation between p53 mutation and cervical adenocarcinoma without HPV infection. METHODS: From 1998 to 2002, 54 patients were diagnosed with cervical adenocarcinoma and underwent radical hysterectomy at Seoul National University Hospital. Of them, 50 patients were available for review of medical records and histologic examination. Using ABC method, we performed immunohistochemical staining. If there is 10% or more of staining positive, it was read positive. And we used HPVDNAChip for detection of HPV. RESULTS: Of the 50 patients, 45 (90.0%) patients were positive for high risk HPV and 4 patients (8.0%) were p53 positive. In the patients with negative for p53, there were significantly more patient with HPV positive (p=0.04). Advanced stage of cervical adenocarcinoma was related to high rate of positivity of p53, but it was not statistically significant. CONCLUSION: In patients who diagnosed cervical adenocarcinoma without HPV infection, there were over expression of p53. This suggests that abnormality of p53 may be related to pathogenisis of cervical adenocarcinoma without HPV infection.
Key Words: Cervical adenocarcinoma, p53 mutation, HPV infection
