Tamoxifen is a non-steroid estrogenic antagonist, used in post-surgical therapy of breast cancer. It interferes with endocrinous promotion of breast cancer. Tamoxifen could determine endometrial, even carcinomatous, alterations. The case of a postmenopausal patient surgically treated for breast cancer and successively treated with tamoxifen (20 mg/die), is reported. She underwent ultrasonographic and hysterosonographic endometrial evaluation and finally a hysterectomy with bilateral annessiectomy. This case seems to confirm tamoxifen possible carcinogenical effects on the endometrium.
