Cervical sample is routinely taken to identify squamous dysplastic lesions of the cervix. Glandular lesions are far less commonly reported on cervical samples. The most common glandular lesion reported on cervical smear is endocervical adenocarcinoma, followed by endometrial adenocarcinoma. Direct sampling by Cervex brush is possible even in endometrial adenocarcinoma, if the tumor directly involves lower uterine segment/endocervical canal. Metastases to cervix are rare but have occasionally been reported in previous reports. We wish to highlight in this case, metastatic ovarian carcinoma directly sampled in cervical liquid-based cytology (LBC) sample, which mimicked cytomorphologically a well-differentiated endocervical adenocarcinoma. To the best of our knowledge, a similar case has not been previously published in SurePath LBC sample.
