Abstract

The authors report on up to date knowledge of the risk of endometrial carcinoma women operated on mastectomy for breast carcinoma and treated with TAM. Starting from their own clinical and scientific experience, the authors follow a group of such patients with a strict monitoring, to ascertain the eventual comparison of dysplastic and neoplastic endometrial pathologies. The group numbers 18 patients and the aim of the study is to evaluate the importance of hysteroscopy as a diagnostic approach for this iatrogenic pathology. The authors affirm the validity of this partially invasive diagnostic method that has to be integrated with clinical and laboratory parameters that are justified by the cost/benefit ratio always favourable for the diagnosis of a neoplastic pathology.
