Clear cell carcinoma (CCC) of the uterine cervix is a rare gynecologic cancer that accounts for 4–9% of adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix. Two types of uterine cervical CCCs are known: A type that is associated with in utero exposure to diethylstilbestrol (DES) and idiopathic type that is unrelated to DES exposure. Due to its rare incidence, the clinical behavior and pathological characteristics of CCCs are not fully described and treatment recommendations are not standardized. Moreover, only a few cases are reported on the recurrent metastatic CCCs and the results of various treatment trials are inconsistent. We present a case of successfully treated idiopathic metastatic CCC of the uterine cervix that recurred after concurrent chemoradiotherapy.
