Abstract

The presence of trophoblastic differentiation or nongestational choriocarcinoma in a carcinoma is rare but has been described in various organs, including in the female genital tract. We report a cervical clear cell carcinoma admixed with a component of choriocarcinoma in a 52-year-old woman, only the second report of this combination in the literature. Immunohistochemically, the tumor exhibited isolated loss of staining with the mismatch repair protein MSH6. We review the literature on trophoblastic differentiation in cervical carcinoma.
