Hyperplasia is part of the preinvasive spectrum of disease in Lynch syndrome (LS)-associated endometrial cancer (EC), as indicated by the presence of concurrent complex hyperplasia and complex atypical hyperplasia in cases of LS-associated EC cases. Although loss of phosphatase and tensin homolog is common in both LS and sporadic EC cases, there was a lack of additional mutations noted in LS-associated EC, suggesting that within the context of the mismatch repair defects in LS, fewer additional molecular changes are required to progress from preinvasive lesions to carcinoma.
