Abstract

Clear cell adenocarcinoma (CCA) of the vagina and the cervix is a rare tumour. Since 1971 its increased incidence has been ascribed to intrauterine exposure to diethylstilboestrol (DES) and as a consequence the US Food and Drug Administration has banned the use of all DES-type medications during pregnancy. We report a case of CCA demonstrated by magnetic resonance imaging.
