Özet

Ten pubertal boys treated with tamoxifen for gynecomastia for more than 3 months were evaluated after 2.5-7 years (mean 4.6 years) to determine the side effects of this therapy. We assessed the safety of long duration in adolescents with pubertal gynecomastia treated with tamoxifen. We did not find any serious side effects of tamoxifen in these patients.
