Observational Model: Case-Only, Time Perspective: Retrospective
Overall Status
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the cervix has showed a marked decline in developed countries over the past 40 years, however, there has also been an increase in relative and absolute incidence of adenocarcinoma and adenosquamous carcinoma (AC) of the uterine cervix over the same period.

Our understanding of the natural history and optimal management of AC is limited. It appears that AC and SCC of the cervix behave differently. They are different in epidemiology, prognostic factors, and patterns of failure after similar treatments. Available data suggest that they may also differ in their response to treatment. We postulate that new treatment strategies specifically tailored to AC should be explored.

However, there is few data about outcome of cervical cancer in Taiwan. So we propose this proposal for retrospective analysis of clinicopathological parameters and outcomes in patients of cervical cancer, especially for cervical adenocarcinoma and adenosquamous carcinoma.
