The Author measured 17-beta-estradiol, prolactin, FSH and LH in 17 menopausal female patients with different types of endometrial hyperplasia, 12 patients with adenocarcinoma of the endometrium and in a group of 20 subjects, free of endometrial pathology, who served as the control, and confirm the main risk factors for this pathology (over-weight, glicerides intolerance and hypertension). Doubts regarding the innocuity of estrogen therapy at menopause are expressed and anti­estrogen with or without bromocriptina, used in certain forms of mammary pathology, is suggested as an alternative therapy for endometrial pathology.
