Abstract

The value of cytology as a diagnostic tool in uterine MMMT has been tested in order to reach an earlier diagnosis. From 10 endocervical scrapings we were able to obtain 7 positive smears, two of them diagnostic for mixed tumour at first examination, 1 detected upon revision. In one case the positive smear was obtained from a direct scraping of the neoplasia protruding through the cervical os.
