Abstract

Clear cell carcinoma is a rare pediatric cervical cancer, seen primarily in the setting of in utero diethylstilbesterol exposure. Historically, this type of cancer has been treated with radical hysterectomy and lymph-node dissection, rendering patients incapable of carrying a pregnancy in the future. We describe a young patient with clear cell carcinoma of the cervix who, through a multidisciplinary collaboration, was managed by a fertility-sparing alternative surgical approach-a radical trachelectomy. We present the surgical technique and review the current evidence regarding the use of radical trachelectomy as a fertility-sparing procedure in young patients with cervical cancer.
