Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
Paraffin block sections of a uterus and ovarian mass from a 31 year old female were sent for second opinion to the Pathology Laboratory of Aga Khan University. Histologic examination and immunohistochemical features gave a diagnosis of primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of non-small cell type admixed with benign mucinous cystadenoma. This is a rare tumour with only eight being reported in literature.
