Abstract

Histopathological findings in 226 post‐meno‐pausal bleeding women were reviewed retrospectively. Ade‐nocarcinoma of the endometrium was diagnosed in 7% and hyperplastic endometrium in 15%. The incidence of malignancy showed a definite rise with advancing age, increasing amount and duration of bleeding, prolonged time interval between the menopause and onset of bleeding, and enlarged uterus. Adenocarcinoma of the endometrium was associated in 40% of the patients with either obesity, diabetes mellitus, or hypertension. The most frequent histopathological finding was atrophic endometrium (45%). 1986 Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand
