Adenosquamous carcinoma (cervix)

Adenosquamous cell carcinoma (ASC) of the cervix is a rare histological subtype of cervical carcinoma.

It has components of both cervical adenocarcinoma and cervical squamous cell carcinoma.

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. A significant decrease in survival, however, applies to patients with advanced-stage disease, usually FIGO stage IIb or above 1-2.
