Overview

NCI Definition: A primary or metastatic malignant neoplasm involving the female reproductive system. Representative examples include endometrial carcinoma, cervical carcinoma, ovarian carcinoma, uterine corpus leiomyosarcoma, adenosarcoma, malignant mixed mesodermal (mullerian) tumor, and gestational choriocarcinoma. [1]

Malignant female reproductive system neoplasms most frequently harbor alterations in TP53, PIK3CA, PTEN, ARID1A, and KRAS [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Malignant Female Reproductive System Neoplasm

TP53 Mutation, TP53 Missense, TP53 c.217-c.1178 Missense, PIK3CA Mutation, and PTEN Mutation are the most common alterations in malignant female reproductive system neoplasm [2].
