Minimal deviation adenocarcinoma (MDA) is uncommon and accounts for only 1-3% of all cervical adenocarcinomas, and most pathologists diagnose only one or two cases during their professional life. MDA is unusually well-differentiated adenocarcinoma of the cervix formed by neoplastic cells displaying only minimal cytological atypia. Because of the high degree of differentiation, there is a high frequency of failure to diagnose this malignancy histologically. To better understand the presentation of MDA, we are reviewing the clinical, histological, and immunohistochemistry findings in one case.
