ABSTRACT
Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) is the most frequent debilitating complaint in the genecology department with varied causes. Hence, endometrial biopsies and curettings are the pillars for diagnosing endometrial pathology. The present study was done to document the histopathological appearances seen in the biopsies and observe the incidence of various endometrial pathology patterns in different age groups in patients with AUB.A prospective study was performed on 230 endometrial samples from patients with AUB. The samples were received in 10% formalin, processed routinely, and the slides were stained in Haematoxylin and Eosin. The predominant endometrial finding was in the normal cyclical pattern 119 cases (52%) followed by disordered proliferative endometrium 28 cases (12.1%). Malignant lesions were seen in 3 cases (1.3%) in patients above 50 years of age. Among the organic causes, polyps were seen in 12 cases (5.2%). Endometrial biopsies and curettings remain the cornerstone for assessing and managing AUB.
