N2 - <p>Background. Villoglandular adenocarcinoma (VGA) of the cervix is <br/> reported as a variant of a cervical adenocarcinoma with a good <br/> prognosis. Cases. We present two cases histologically reported as a <br/> villoglandular adenocarcinoma of the cervix that have recurred and <br/> progressed rapidly since initial treatment. External histopathological <br/> review suggested both had a prominent villoglandular pattern but with an<br/> associated underlying well-differentiated adenocarcinoma. Conclusion. <br/> The diagnosis of VGA is difficult. Current literature is not entirely <br/> consistent in the presented definition, and further clarity is needed. <br/> Because of the rarity of VGA and the difficulty but importance of the <br/> diagnosis, we would feel that a central review of all cases of VGA is <br/> warranted. This would assist in diagnosis and also in obtaining accurate<br/> follow-up data. © 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved</p>
