Abstract Data were obtained retrospectively on 1005 patients with histologically proven endometrialcarcinoma from January 1960 to December 1976 inclusive. The 5- and 10-year actuarial survivals for all stages were 83 and 80 respectively. Recurrent disease developed in 14% of patients. The site of first recurrence was vaginal vault in 2.5%, lower vagina in 1.1%, pelvis in 5.7%, and lungs in 1.9%. Thirty-eight patients (27%) had multiple sites of metastatic disease at the time of first relapse. The only significant independent prognosticvariables for clinical Stage I adenocarcinoma treated with surgery and radiation were no myometrial penetration and poorly differentiated tumors.
