Abstract

Tumor tissue from 57 cases of keratinizing-type squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix that had been stored in the archives of Osaka City University Hospital between May 1986 and October 1994 were stained with periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) reagent following amylase and alcian blue to identify the presence of intracellular mucin and to assess the value and significance of demonstrating the presence of mucin. Nineteen specimens (33.3%) stained positive for mucin with alcian blue or PAS following diastase. The results of mucin staining were not significant in terms of survival by Kaplan-Meier's analysis.
