  • Additional Information

    Abstract:This is the first reported case, to our knowledge, of a true collision primary tumor of the endometrium. Neuroendocrine carcinoma of the endometrium is itself a rare tumor. In this case we present a collision tumor of neuroendocrine carcinoma with endometrioid adenocarcinoma of the endometrium. The unique morphologic and immunophenotypic features of these tumors in this case are discussed, justifying the classification of this case as a collision primary tumor of the endometrium.

    Keywords: Collision, synchronous, tumor, endometrium, adenocarcinoma, neuroendocrine.
