Adenocarcinoma in adenomyosis is unusual and in most cases is associated with adenocarcinoma in the surface endometrium. In the latter, the diagnosis is made in the removed specimen because of the finding of adenocarcinoma in curettings. In contrast, adenocarcinoma arising in adenomyosis without surface endometrial changes is extremely rare and presents major diagnostic problems. The two cases reported herein demonstrate the significance of atypical vaginal cytology in the recognition of such lesions.
