NCI Definition: A primary, usually low grade adenocarcinoma of the endometrium in which the majority of the malignant epithelial cells contain abundant intracytoplasmic mucin. [1]

Endometrial mucinous adenocarcinomas most frequently harbor alterations in TP53, PTEN, PIK3CA, and KRAS [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Endometrial Mucinous Adenocarcinoma

TP53 c.217-c.1178 Missense, TP53 Mutation, TP53 Missense, TP53 P190L, and TP53 Exon 7 Mutation are the most common alterations in endometrial mucinous adenocarcinoma [2].
