Review Title: Squamous and glandular epithelial tumors of the cervix: A pragmatical review emphasizing emerging issues in classification, diagnosis, and staging
Abstract: Squamous cell carcinoma is the most frequent epithelial malignant tumor of the cervix and among the most frequent neoplasm in women worldwide. Endocervical adenocarcinoma is the second most common malignancy. Both tumors and their precursors are currently classified based on human papillomavirus status, with prognostic and predictive value. Various prognostic biomarkers and alternative morphologic parameters have been recently described and could be used in the management of these patients. This pragmatical review highlights recent developments, emerging issues as well as controversial areas regarding the cause-based classification, diagnosis, staging, and prognostic parameters of epithelial malignant tumors of the cervix.
