The patient is a 67 year old female with a recent diagnosis of well-differentiated uterine endometrioid adenocarcinoma with focal squamous differentiation arising in complex atypical hyperplasia. The adenocarcinoma involved 50% of the endometrial surface and invaded approximately 15% of the myometrium (Grade I, Stage IB). The pelvic nodes were negative for tumor. She was noted to have on physical examination a small area of skin depression overlying the left hip. A skin biopsy of this area was taken. The lesion was subsequently excised completely, no follow-up is available.
