Abstract

The best treatment for recurrent endometrial cancer is still uncertain, although weekly paclitaxel has shown some promise in the management of this disease. In this report we present a patient with recurrent endometrial cancer treated with weekly paclitaxel. Serial power Doppler angiography was used to assess the effects of therapy. The response was good, suggesting that recurrent endo­metrial cancer may be successfully treated with weekly paclitaxel and effectively monitored with power Doppler angiography.
