ABSTRACT: Clear cell adenosquamous carcinoma is an extremely rare and recently described variant of adenosquamous carcinoma of the cervix. It has a unique histologic appearance and has been shown to be associated with human papillomavirus-18. Its significance lies in the fact that it is associated with an aggressive clinical course and has to be differentiated microscopically from clear cell carcinoma and glassy cell carcinoma.
