Objective: To investigate the clinicopathological features of endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma(EEA)with adnexal involvement.Methods The clinicopathological data of 86 EEA patients who underwent surgical treatment at our center from January 2000 to December 2015 were analyzed retrospectively.The clinicopathological features were compared between patients with occult adnexal involvement and those with gross adnexal involvement.Results A total of 86 EEA patients with adnexal involvement(mean age:58.1 years)were included in this study,accounting for 5.4%(86/1592)of the EEA patients during the same period.Among these 86 patients,there were 13 premenopausal patients(15.1%)including 2 premenopausal patients aged under 40 years.Gross adnexal involvement was found in 47 patients(54.7%),while occult adnexal involvement was found in 39 patients(45.3%)in pathology evaluation.Ovarian metastasis was found in 34 patients(39.5%),followed by both ovarian and tubal metastasis in 19 patients(22.1%)and tubal metastasis in 33 patients(38.4%).The expressionss of estrogen receptor(χ2=8.086,P=0.042)and progesterone receptor(PR)(χ2=9.149,P=0.026)were significantly different between gross adnexal involvement group and occult adnexal involvement group,whereas no significant difference was found in other clinicopathological features(all P>0.05).The non-conditional Logistic regression analysis showed that,compared with PR no-expression group,the rate of occult microscopic adnexal involvement in PR low-expression group was 6.375 times of that of the gross adnexal involvement(P=0.005,95%CI:1.768-22.976),and the rate of occult microscopic adnexal involvement in the PR high-expression group was 3.719 times of that of gross adnexal involvement(P=0.048,95%CI:1.009-13.702). Conclusion PR expression level is remarkably lower in EEA patients with gross adnexal involvement than those with occult adenxal involvement.
