Abstract

Menstrual problems are very common in females of reproductive age, which cause a significant burden on society and the family with frequent visits to medical facilities.Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) is a symptom not a disease. It accounts for more than 70% of all gynaecological consultants in the peri-and postmenopausal age groups. As different abnormal and normal endometrial pathologies are encountered with diagnostic challenges for histopathologists in patients with abnormal uterine bleeding. Nowadays, ultrasonography (USG) is preferred over dilatation and curettage (D&C) as non-invasive. However, in small health centres such as primary health care in rural areas where ultrasonography (USG) is not available, D&C delivers the same results in such settings. The present study is therefore required to correlate these histopathological findings with transvaginal ultrasound (TVUS) in D&C and/or hysterectomy specimens, in addition to the accuracy of TVUS, which is used as a screening tool.
