Abstract

Proportion of cases with primary adenocarcinoma among all cases of cancers of uterine cervix was studied from 1984 to 1988. Significant increase in cases of adenocarcinoma was found during the period when compared to preceding 5 years (p< 0.02). The diagnosed cases were younger (41.83 ± 2.64 and 51.45 ± 9.88 years, p<0.001), and in early stage (19.4 and 11.7, percent) than the squamous cell carcinoma cases. The disease free status status at 6 month after therapy was significantly poorer in adenocarcinoma patients than in squamous carcinoma controls (9 and 19 of 31 case-controls)
