Clear cell adenocarcinoma in a female urethral diverticulum.


The incidence of a neoplasm within the female urethral diverticulum is rare. Clear cell adenocarcinoma, which is the most common neoplasm, arises from the metaplasia of surface transitional epithelium and the paraurethral ducts. These tumors are usually diagnosed at a late stage, which worsens their prognosis. The treatment of choice is surgery.
