Abstract

Primary carcinoma of the female urethra is a rare entity. Adenocarcinomas account for only 10% of cases. Clear cell adenocarcinoma (CCA) of the urethra is more common among women than men.1 We report a case of primary CCA of the urethra and review the literature concerning the histogenesis, management, and outcome of this uncommon tumor.
