Endometrial carcinoma, steroid receptor content

Endometrioid carcinomas are associated with hormone replacement therapy and endometrial hyperplasia; they express ER and PR. Clear cell and serous endometrial carcinomas tend to occur in older women against a background of endometrial atrophy and are unassociated with hormone replacement therapy. Some clear cell carcinomas show the architectural and cytological appearances of serous carcinoma. Serous carcinomas over-express p53.
