Abstract

We present a case of endometrial carcinoma accompanied with mucinous cystadenoma in a 70-year-old postmenopausal woman treated with tamoxifen for breast cancer demonstrated by MR imaging. Tamoxifen therapy (20 mg/day) had been carried out for more than 11 years since the surgical procedure for the primary tumor. MR images showed a markedly enlarged uterus containing endometrial carcinoma, cystic atrophy of the endometrium, and a right adnexal mass with multicystic components of various signal intensities.
