Adenocarcinomas, Clear Cell

An Adenocarcinoma characterized by the presence of varying combinations of clear and hobnail-shaped Tumor Cells. There are three predominant patterns described as tubulocystic, solid, and papillary. These Tumors, usually located in the female reproductive organs, have been seen more frequently in young Women since 1970 as a result of the Association with intrauterine exposure to Diethylstilbestrol.
