Primary clear cell adenocarcinoma of the rectovaginal septum is rare and typically emerges in the setting of endometriosis. We report a case of a 52-year-old woman with clear cell adenocarcinoma of the rectovaginal septum presenting with vaginal hemorrhage. Management with concurrent chemoradiation with cisplatin and paclitaxel is discussed. Six years following the completion of treatment, the patient is without evidence of disease or significant long-term toxicity
