Clear cell adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix ina 17-year-old girl
Clear cell adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix (CCEA) is a rare disease, accounting for only 1% of all cervical cancers. The disease in young women is linked to diethylstilbestrol (DES) exposure in utero. Following the ban of DES in 1979, CCEA rarely occurs in young women, but still remains a challenge in diagnosis and fertility preservation. We report on a 17-year-old girl, unexposed to DES, diagnosed with clear cell adenocarcinoma in a cervical polyp.
