mucinous carcinoma of the cervix

Mucinous carcinoma of the cervix is an uncommon histological subtype of cervical cancer. It falls under the group of adenocarcinoma of the cervix.

Radiographic features


As a general rule any mucin-producing tumor will produce very high T2 signal .

An enhancing lesion, irregular margin, and isointensity on T1 are features that would weigh towards a malignant lesion rather than a benign one .

Differential diagnosis

For more well-defined high T2 signal lesions on MRI, consider

  • atypical nabothian cyst: tends to have high signal on T1 and no enhancement post contrast
