In short


  • EC is traditionally classified into two major types (I and II). Type I tumors (G1-G2 endometrioid adenocarcinomas) account for about 80% of endometrial carcinomas, have a favorable prognosis and are estrogen-responsive. 
  • Type II tumors account for 10–20% of EC, include high grade endometrioid tumors, and non-endometrioid tumors (serous, clear-cell, mucinous, squamous, transitional cell, mesonephric, carcinosarcoma, and undifferentiated), have a poor prognosis and are not clearly associated with estrogen stimulation.
  • Extrafascial hysterectomy is the preferred treatment for endometrial carcinoma confined to the body. The surgery includes removal of the uterus, tubes and
  • ovaries of both the sides and cuff of vagina.
  • Contraindications of radiotherapy are presence of a pelvic mass, pelvic kidney, pyometra, pelvic abscess, previous laparotomies and/or adhesions with bowel and prior pelvic radiation.
