Abstract

A premenopausal woman with recurrent stage II ductal breast carcinoma was treated with tamoxifen. After ten months of therapy her ovaries became acutely cystic and necrotic, but vascular torsion was not present. This case illustrates the special complications of tamoxifen therapy in premenopausal women.
