*Included 5 papillary serous adenocarcinomas, 3 endometrioid carcinomas, 1 mixed papillary mucinous and serous adenocarcinoma, and 1 mixed endometrioid and papillary serous adenocarcinoma.

** Included 13 poorly differentiated adenocarcinomas of lung and 10 bronchoalveolar carcinomas.

*** Initially 10 cases of colon adenocarcinoma were selected but one was excluded after concluding it to be metastatic prostrate adenocarcinoma to colon.

**** Initially 7 cases of gastric carcinoma were selected but one was later excluded following conclusion of it being metastatic mammary carcinoma to stomach.
