The vaginal apex is the most common site of recurrence in patients with endometrial cancer. Although studies demonstrate that <1% of asymptomatic vaginal recurrences are detected by routine vaginal cytology alone, many practitioners still include it as part of the routine surveillance in these patients after hysterectomy. To further evaluate the effectiveness of vaginal cytology as a surveillance tool, we assessed the subsequent findings in patients reported to have benign and atypical glandular cells on vaginal cytology after hysterectomy performed for endometrial cancer.
