Abstract Share this page

Clear cell adenocarcinoma (CCAC) of uterine cervix is very rare tumor and only 4%-9% of entire adenocarcinoma appears to be diagnosed as clear cell type. Risk factors and pathogenesis of this disease are not exactly revealed. The intrauterine exposure to diethylstilbestrol (DES) and associated non-steroidal estrogen during pregnancy before 18 weeks is the only known risk factor, and also hormonal changes or genetic causes are suggested as the risk factors. We report a case of CCAC in the uterine cervix of 52-year-old virgin who had never been exposed to DES, with a brief review of related literature.
