The incidence of endometrial cancer is increasing. We would like to report our institution's clinical data of endometrioid adenocarcinoma (EC) which is the most frequent type. METHODS: From 1998 to 2009, patients' clinical data were reviewed through medical records, retrospectively. RESULTS: For 11 years, there were 96 patients with EC. The average age was 51.1 years old and mean follow duration was 36.6 months. There were 73 patients with stage I, 10 patients with stage II, and 12 patients with stage III. 42 patients were treated by operation only and 46 patients were treated by operation and adjuvant radiotherapy. Among 95 patients who underwent operations, 32 patients did not get lymph node removal and 63 did, and 10 patients had malignant cells at the lymph nodes removed. 6 patients died of EC, 1 with stage I, 3 with stage II and 1 with stage III. CONCLUSION: This study had retrospective limitation but could show the profile of 96 patients with EC.
