Abstract

Clear cell adenocarcinoma (CCAC) of the uterine cervix is a rare variant of cervical adenocarcinoma accounting for approximately 4-9% of this disease. Given the rarity of this pathological entity, the optimal treatment management is far from being defined. Earlier evidence suggested that the prognosis of patients bearing cervical CCAC is worse than with other histotypes, thus making the investigation of multimodal treatment strategies clinically worthwhile. Herein, we report the first case of locally advanced, large size cervical CCAC in a young woman who was triaged to concomitant chemoradiotherapy followed by radical surgery and experienced a pathologically assessed optimal response to this multimodal approach.
