We describe here a case of minimal deviation endometrioid adenocarcinoma (MDEA) of the uterine cervix that was initially suspected according to the abnormal cytologic findings in a 39-year-old woman. The Papanicolaou (pap) smear showed many neoplastic glandular cells in monolayered sheets, rosettes, and clusters with palisading and feathering borders. The tumor cells had oval, hyperchromatic nuclei, with chromatin clumping and small nucleoli. Histologic examination disclosed endometrial-type glands with a bland, isolated, mainly rounded appearance and these glands were widely scattered deep into the cervical stroma with only scant stromal reaction. An association of MDEA with tubo-endometrioid metaplasia or cervical endometriosis has been suggested by identifying the tubo-endometrioid glands in the vicinity of the MDEA.
