Tarnoxifen-induced endornetrial polyp. A case report and review of the literature
A case of an endometrial polyp which developed in a 74-year-old woman treated with tamoxifen for 15 years after breast cancer surgery was the stimulus for this brief and concise review of the endometrial changes caused by anti-estrogen treatment in postmenopausal women with breast cancer. Tamoxifen therapy has been associated with the development of endometrial polyps, hyperplasia and adenocarcinoma possibly mediated through its agonistic estrogenic properties. Hysteroscopy follow-up should be performed in this group of patients and hysteroscopy should be done before the beginning of therapy and repeated once a year during the treatment.
