Common lesions of uterus and cervix with mast cell profile
Keywords:Mast cell count, uterus, cervix
The present study included a total of 109 cases of which leiomyomas were 15 cases, adenomyosis 6 cases, proliferative and secretory phase endometrium 6 cases each, endometrial polyp 6 cases, endometrial hyperplasia 6 cases, atypical hyperplasia 6 cases, endometrial carcinoma 6 cases, endocervicitis 6 cases, cervical dysplasias 12 cases, carcinoma cervix 10 cases, vesicular mole 6 cases, choriocarcinoma 6 cases, products of conception 6 cases. The mast cell count was significantly increased in cervicitis as compared to cervical carcinoma. Endometrial polyps showed a significant increase of mast cells (p<0.05). In leiomyomas mast cells were significantly high in intramural as compared to submucosal and subserosal types. Choriocarcinoma showed significant increase in mast cells as compared to vesicular mole.
