abstract

  • Out of 1220 (100%) cases of endometrial carcinomas, registered at the Klinik Bad Trissl during a period of 20 years (1968-1988), over 127 cases (10.4%) of double and triple malignomas were found. 86 cases (7.0%) are correlated with a second primary breast cancer, 41 (3.4%) with other primary malignomas. 14 cases (1.1%) show triple malignomas. 8 precancerous cases (0.7%) were included in the survey. Contrary to medical literature the survey reveals a different distribution of neoplasms among the affected organs. Four fifths of the tumour combinations were located in the female genital tract including the breast. Therefore the early detection of potential secondary malignomas should be included in the aftercare of endometrial cancer.
