Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Clear cell carcinoma of cervix is a rare entity amongst cervical neoplasms especially post diethylstilbestrol era. It is hypothesised to have a bimodal distribution with spontaneous cases unrelated to DES exposure observed in elderly age group. We report a rare case of clear cell carcinoma of cervix (CCCC) in a 60-year-old Asian female with no history of diethylstilbestrol (DES) ingestion. She underwent radical hysterectomy and adjuvant radiotherapy and showed no signs of recurrence even after 6 moths of follow up. Review of relevant literature was done including possible aetiology, appropriate treatment and prognostic factors.
