Carcinomatous transformation of retroperitoneal endometriosis
AbstractThe authors present a case of a female patient 45 years old with chronic abdominal pain and a retroperitoneal tumor mass which showed the diagnosis of endometriosis by fine needle biopsy. Bilateral oophorectomy was performed. The patient remained
symptomatic,the next four years, with pain and weight loss and new diagnostic images revealed tumor mass growth. Radical surgical treatment was impracticable due to tumor adhesions to major vascular structures. Post operatory was troublesome with
septic complications evolving to death. The autopsy results showed the diagnosis of endometrioid adenocarcinoma.
