T.M Kariappa, Sathish T.E, Angshuman Saha
Introduction: Dysfunctional uterine bleeding is defined as excessively heavy, prolonged, or frequent bleeding of uterine origin that is not due to pregnancy or any recognizable pelvic or systemic cause. It is a common problem in the women in the age of 30-50 years. The incidence increases as age advances till menopause. It is also seen in perimenarchal and perimenopausal age group. Objectives:1) To study endometrial cytomorphology in cases of DUB.
2) To study correlation of different clinical presentation and clinical finding with histopathology.
3) To correlate age and parity with histopathological finding.
4) To study incidence of various hyperplasia in women with DUB.
Material and methods: The study was done during January 2014 to December 2015. During this period a total of 205 cases were studied. In this study endometrium specimen (specimens) were obtained by Dilatation & Curettage and hysterectomy. Sections were stained by H&E stain and histopathological examination was done.
strong>Result & Conclusion: Maximum numbers of DUB patients were in the age group 31-40 years. Most common presenting complaint was menorrhagia. Most of patients with DUB shows proliferative phase with hyperplastic pattern. Simple hyperplasia was more common than complex and atypical hyperplasia. As age advances, the incidence of hyperplasia also increased. Parity has no influence on endometrial pattern in DUB.
