This poor woman's mother must have been exposed to DES (diethylstilbestrol), which is mainly notorious for causing T-shaped uterus & clear cell adenocarcinomas to DES daughters (among other sequellae, such as breast cancer & ectopic pregnancies). NEJM (what a surprise!) was the first journal to publish such evidence in the early 70's.
