Abstract


Carcinosarcomas are rare uterine cancers and carry poor prognosis. Although these tumours usually arise de novo, some cases developed under tamoxifen therapy have been reported. We report a case of uterine carcinosarcoma occurring in a postmenopausal patient benefiting from tamoxifen therapy as adjuvant treatment of breast cancer.

Author Keywords: Carcinosarcomas, Uterus, Tamoxifen.


Abstract: (french)


Les carcinosarcomes sont des cancers rares de l'utérus et leur pronostic est péjoratif. Si ces tumeurs sont le plus souvent primitives, il a été rapporté un certain nombre de cas survenant après une hormonothérapie par tamoxifène. Les auteurs rapportent un cas de carcinosarcome utérin survenue chez une patiente ménopausée ayant eu une hormonothérapie antiestrogénique dans le cadre du traitement adjuvant d'un cancer du sein.

Author Keywords: Carcinosarcomes, Utérus, Tamoxifène.
