GALLEGOS, M. I. et al. Lung primary tumor versus endometrial secondary tumor as a manifestation of a latent tumor. Oncología (Barc.) [online]. 2006, vol.29, n.4, pp.42-44. ISSN 0378-4835.

PURPOSE: To describe a case of endometrial carcinoma with an atypical outcome. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We report a typical early endometrial adenocarcinoma with a good prognosis, which after a long latent period showed an atypical outcome with the appearance of a lung tumour suspicious to be another primary tumour. However, a good response was obtained treating with carboplatin and paclitaxel, known as an active chemotherapy of endometrial neoplasms. DISCUSSION: Early endometrial tumours have survival rates between 80 and 90%. It is unusual the development of progression after a long disease-free period.

Keywords : Endometrial adenocarcinoma; Latent period; Carboplatin; Paclitaxel.
