Abstract
Primary squamous cell carcinoma of the endometrium is extremely rare malignancy. In 1928 Fluhmann proposed three criteria to establish the diagnosis: (1) no coexisting endometrial adenocarcinoma, (2) no connection between the endometrial tumor and the squamous epithelium of the cervix, and (3) no squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix present. Historically, this malignancy has been associated with short survival (<24 months) despite complete surgical extirpation, with or without pre- or postoperative external beam irradiation. In this report, a case of endometrial squamous cell carcinoma is presented with a review of related current knowledge.
Key Words: Endometrial carcinoma, Squamous cell carcinoma
