A case of squamous cell carcinoma of the endometrium which fulfills Fluhmann's criteria is presented. This case is reviewed together with additional 25 cases which had been already reported in various papers in the literature. The pathogenesis and the etiologic factors associated with primary squamous cell carcinoma of the endometrium are discussed. A review of the literature indicates that this rare malignancy is found in older patients, is highly malignant and carries a poor prognosis as myometrial invasion, and local extension or metastasis is found in 80% of the patients.
