Case Summary

A 47-year-old G2P2002 presented to the oncologist with a history of Stage IIIB estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), and human epidermal receptor 2 (HER2) positive ductal carcinoma managed with right mastectomy, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and tamoxifen. The patient had had a 7-year disease-free interval, but on presentation, recurrences were found in her bones, brain, and lymph nodes. Shortly after disease recurrence, she experienced new-onset vaginal bleeding. The patient underwent positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) and subsequently underwent total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and lymph node dissection.
