Retroperitoneal fibrosis with favorable evolution under treatment with tamoxifen

Acta Endo (Buc) 2010, 6 (1): 95-102
doi: 10.4183/aeb.2010.95

Retroperitoneal fibrosis (RPF), a disease with a severe outcome due to the complications it causes, can be associated with the processes of atherosclerosis with a massive and extensive fibrosis. In this paper we present a patient with retroperitoneal fibrosis in which we noticed estrogen receptors at the level of the periaortic fibrous tissue\r\nand we obtained a regression of this process under treatment with tamoxifen.

Keywords: selective estrogen receptor modulators, retroperitoneal fibrosis, tamoxifen
