Abstract

In order to elucidate the basis for the development of an endometrial carcinoma, we looked for microcarcinomas measuring <5 mm in greatest diameter, and studied their histologic characteristics and those of the neighboring endometrium. Using serial step section methods, two microcarcinomas were detected. A microcarcinoma was found in one of 14 uteri resected for atypical hyperplasia and the other was found in one of 114 uteri resected for endometrial carcinoma. The neighboring endometrium of the former was adenomatous and had atypical hyper.
