AbstractThe production of unexpected cell products, including the placental protein human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG), has been reported in a variety of tumors at different anatomical sites. Some of the reported tumors have also expressed morphological features suggesting choriocarcinoma. Such is the case in this tumor of the uterine cervix which has a major component of anaplastic tumour with β-hCG production confirmed both by positive staining using immunoperoxidase techniques and by pre- and postoperative serum assays for β-hCG. The differing immunohistochemical features seen in the two components of the tumor are reported. The relationship of the anaplastic component to the adjacent mucinous adenocarcinoma in the present case, and to similar cases at other sites from the literature, is discussed.
