This preparation is made from a sagittal section of the uterus, which is why it may look weird. Three lesions are visible:
A thecofibroma, a benign ovarian tumor. It is yellowish.
An endometrial carcinoma. It shows all the typical characteristics of a malignant tumor, like lack of capsule, infiltrative border and poorly circumscribed.
Diagnosis: Endometrial carcinoma, with thecofibroma and leiomyoma
- Increased levels of oestrogen
- Metabolic syndrome
Some teachers disagree that the thecofibroma is a thecofibroma. I don’t know what they suggest it actually is, though.
