Primary clear cell carcinoid tumors of the vulva

Neuroendocrine tumors are uncommon in the female genital tract and have been described in the ovary, uterus, cervix, and vagina.

Very rare primary carcinoid tumors have been described in the vulva.

Primary clear cell carcinoid tumors of the vulva need to be considered in the differential diagnosis of vulvar masses with clear cell features.
