Adeno squamous cell carcinoma (cervix)

Adeno squamous cell (ASC) carcinoma of the cervix is a rare histological sub type of carcinoma of cervix

It has components of both adenocarcinoma of cervix and squamous cell carcinoma of cervix

An adenosquamous histology appears to be an independent predictor of poor outcome in women with cervical carcinoma compared with their counterparts who have pure adenocarcinoma. The significant decrease in survival however is thought to apply to patients with advanced-stage (usually IIb or above) disease 1-2.
