Abstract

Background: There are various pathologies causing abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB), of which, some are predisposing for cancer, thus, we studied frequency of different pathologies in patients referring to Shabihkhani hospital in Kashan, 2000-01.Materials and Methods: It was a descriptive study. Initial data including method of contraception, parity, age, severity of dysmenorrhea and bleeding pattern were all recorded. Samples were obtained by D&C procedure.Results: The study population included 200 patients with the mean age of 46.2±6.2 years. Endometrial tissues were insufficient in 11. Proliferative endometrium was by far the most frequent pathology. Adenomatous hyperplasia was more commonly seen in para-8 women (0.6), however, atrophic endometrium was frequently observed in para-9 and higher females (0.6). Cystic and adenomatous hyperplasia was commonly found on obese females. There was no relationship between the results of pathology and the presence and severity of dysmenorrhea.Conclusion: Cystic and adenomatous hyperplasia (Predisposing to endometrial cancer) was more commonly seen in obese patients.
