Hysteroscopic View of
Endometrial Hyperplasia

Mojgan Barati1, Sara Masihi2, Farideh Moramezi3

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the hysteroscopic appearance of endometrial hyperplasia in women with subsequently confirmed diagnosis of endometrial hyperplasia.

Methodology: This study was done in Aria Hospital in Ahwaz,Iran fromJanuary 21, 2003 to May 24th 2005. Fifty women underwent hysteroscopy with eye direct biopsy of the endometrium. Cause of hysteroscopy was Abnormal Uterine Bleeding (AUB) in 93.5% of cases. Specimens were sent for histology assessment. From these patients five cases had pathologic diagnosis of endometrial hyperplasia. Hysteroscopic features of these five cases were reviewed.

Results: In case one which was simple cystic hyperplasia, there was obvious cystic bizarre view. In case two, three and four there were minimal hysteroscopic abnormal view. In case 5 which was endometrial hyperplasia with atypia, there were obvious white endometrial elevations in the endometrial lining.

Conclusions: Endometrial hyperplasia may produce obvious space occupying lesions in which diagnosis is easy with hysteroscopy, but it may be not very obvious especially in early stages of the disease. In all these 5 cases there were white areas with markedly reduced or absent vascularity.

KEY WORDS: Hysteroscopy, Endometrial hyperplasia, White lesion.
