Table 2 Immunohistochemistry patterns by HPV positivity in archival adenocarcinoma samples from Uganda*

From: The usefulness of immunohistochemistry in tissue microarrays of Human Papillomavirus negative adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix

HPV positive (N = 12/25) HPV negative (N = 13/25)
CEA Vimentin ER PR % with this pattern % with this pattern Histological subtype
+ - - - 58.3% (7/12) 38.5% (5/13) Mucinous Intestinal (2) Mucinous Endocervical (1) Mucinous NOS (1) NOS (1)
- + - + 16.7% (2/12) 0.0% (0/13) -
- + - - 8.3% (1/12) 23.1% (3/13) Mucinous Endocervical (1) NOS (2; probable endometrial)
- - - - 16.7% (2/12) 38.5% (5/13) Mucinous Endocervical (1) Mucinous Villoglandular (1) NOS (1)†,§ Serous (2; probable endometrial)
  1. *Out of the 26 samples 25 were stained with all the antibodies and HPV tested
  2. After immunohistochemistry and histological subtype diagnosis an endometrial origin cannot be discarded
  3. §No further classification because of lack of markers
