Abstract

Clear cell carcinoma is an aggressive subtype of uterine carcinoma. Metastases can be local and/or distant but metastasis to the biliary tree resulting in obstructive jaundice is extremely rare. This is the first report of endometrial carcinoma of clear cell type with metastasis to the common hepatic duct, causing malignant biliary stricture and obstructive jaundice in a young woman, diagnosed on a biliary cytology brushing specimen.
