Endometrial mesonephric-like carcinoma (ML-CA) is a recently recognized subtype of aggressive endometrial adenocarcinoma that is morphologically and immunophenotypically similar to mesonephric carcinoma but not typically associated with mesonephric remnants. Here, we report a case of 58-yr-old female who had a past medical history of fibroids and of irregular menstrual bleeding for ~20 yr who presented with visual disturbance. On further investigation, she was found to have a large choroidal peri-papillary tumor of the right eye. A presumptive diagnosis of choroidal melanoma was made. Right eye enucleation was performed, and microscopy revealed moderately differentiated metastatic adenocarcinoma. Further work up was advised. A uterine mass was identified on imaging followed by endometrial biopsy that showed a morphologically and immunohistochemically similar tumor to that in the eye. A hysterectomy was carried out and a malignant neoplasm with varying morphologic patterns including gland formation, solid sheets of tumor cells, cribriform, glomeruloid, spindled and papillary areas was seen. The immunohistochemical profile showed diffuse strong positivity for AE1/AE3, TTF1, P16, and vimentin. CD56, GATA3, Napsin A, and CD10 were focally positive. The neoplastic cells were negative for the following markers ER, PR, WT1, calretinin, and synaptophysin. PDL-1 was negative and mismatch repair protein was proficient. An identical KRAS mutation was detected in both the uterine corpus and ocular tumors. The findings are in keeping with a uterine mesonephric-like adenocarcinoma with an ocular metastasis. An Oncomine Focus-Mutation profile, Thermo-Fisher Scientific Inc., a 60 gene oncologic panel, performed on the ocular tumor, revealed no further mutations.
