Successful Mx of uterine serous carcinoma in a pt with renal
Renal transplantation is a risk factor for premalignant and malignant changes of the endometrium. Thus, prompt and aggressive treatment of postoperative complications remains a major issue.

Published in the Taiwanese Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the authors report the case of an asymptomatic postmenopausal woman with a history of renal transplantation who underwent surgery for uterine serous carcinoma (USC).

An asymptomatic 59-year-old woman who had undergone renal transplantation presented with elevated serum CA-125 levels. Cancer screening revealed uterine serous carcinoma, for which she underwent total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.

Unfortunately, the postoperative course was complicated by cardiogenic shock and decompensated heart failure. The complexities of the cardiac problems and renal transplantation required a multidisciplinary approach involving different specialists. She was successfully discharged 48 days after the surgery.

Key takeaways:-
- Gynecologic cancer screening in asymptomatic postmenopausal women after renal transplantation is warranted.

- If postoperative complications occur in this population, a multidisciplinary approach is recommended.
