Analysis of Endometrial Histopathology in Abnormal Uterine Bleeding: A Prospective Hospital Based Study
Background: Dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB) can be defined as abnormal bleeding from the vagina that is due to changes in hormone levels. Such type of bleeding is not caused by pregnancy or miscarriage, medical conditions like cancer or fibroids. Problems with the uterus or vagina from infection or other causes can be classified as ovulatory or anovulatory, depending on whether ovulation is occurring or not.
Methods: This study was examined with 300 cases presenting abnormal uterine bleeding.
The duration of study was over a period of 9 months. This study was conducted in Department of Pathology, Govt. Medical College, Badaun, U.P
Results: In our study Endometrium pathology of abnormal uterine bleeding were obtained in 150 cases.In the present study 51 cases were seen with reproductive age,70 cases seen with Perimenopausal age & 29 cases were seen with Postmenopausal age.
Conclusions: This study suggested that, histopathologic study is mandatory in perimenopausal and postmenopausal bleeding cases. It helps to diagnose early atypical hyperplasia and endometrial carcinoma which have exceptional prognosis when detected early.
