Most low-grade, early-stage endometrial endometrioid carcinomas (EEC) have an excellent prognosis; however, recurrences occur in a small subset with several studies reporting an increase in CTNNB1 exon 3 mutations in this population. Herein we evaluated 10 recurrent low-grade (FIGO 1 or 2), early-stage (FIGO IA) EECs matched to 10 nonrecurrent EECs to further characterize their clinicopathologic features and molecular phenotype. Cases were matched to controls based on size, grade, and depth of invasion. All tumors were evaluated for specific clinicopathologic parameters followed by next-generation sequencing using a 1213 gene panel. Recurrent EECs demonstrated no significant clinicopathologic differences when compared with nonrecurrent EECs, in terms of age, body mass index, pattern of invasion, presence of endometrial atypical hyperplasia/endometrioid intraepithelial neoplasia, associated metaplastic changes, peritumoral lymphocytes, mitoses, and tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes. Both cohorts also showed a similar number of pathogenic mutations, including CTNNB1 exon 3 mutations, as well as tumor mutational burden and microsatellite profiles. Although in this particular study, the lack of correlation between CTNNB1 exon 3 mutation and recurrence might be secondary to a small sample size, it also suggests the presence of other contributing factors. Thus, it helps set the foundation for larger series incorporating whole genome, transcriptome, proteome, and epigenome analyses to answer this clinically important question.
