1)Metastases in the female genital tract occur from cancers that arise in various anatomic sites . The ovary is the most common metastatic site followed by the vagina, cervix, uterine corpus, and fallopian tubes. Among extra genital cancers metastasizing to the uterine corpus, breast is the most common primary site. Lobular carcinoma is the most common type of breast carcinoma that metastasizes to the uterus. 2) Signet-ring cells are vacuolated cells in which the nucleus is displaced and the vacuolated cytoplasm forms the image of a finger pore. The presence of signet cells in the presence of an endometrial tumour is primarily considered as the sign of a metastatic tumour. 3)In known breast cancer patients, a hormone-induced (tamoxifen) endometrial neoplasm should be excluded; and A consistent IHC is necessary to determine the original tumor.4) palliative hysterectomy for heavy uterine bleeding with laproscopy is good option for improvement of quality of life for rest of life.

Thank you Dr Dinesh Gupta sir and Dr Ajmal an sir

It is completely different pathology as compared to lobular breast carcinoma which has much less potential to metastasis. Adv CT abdomen and pelvis PET CT while body to look for metastatic disease Further treatment based on evaluation of metastatic disease She may need, chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery

Primary signet ring adenocarcinoma of uterus is very rare and most commonly it is metastatic signet ring adenocarcinoma from breast or stomach .
