Case contributed by Dr Maulik S Patel


H/o 2 episodes of spotting per vaginum in post menopausal patient. USG for endometrial evaluation.

Patient Data

Age: 65 yrs
Gender: Female

Endometrial thickness is 12 mm. Multiple cystic spaces are noted within. Solid areas are echogenic. Margins of endometrial lining was well-defined.

No significant flow signals seen.

Myometrium does not show focal lesion.

Either of ovaries could not be localized.

Case Discussion

In a symptomatic (with bleeding per vaginum) post menopausal patient, endometrial thickness more than 5 mm is an abnormal finding. However, a thickened endometrium is a non-specific finding and needs histopathology.

D & C - was done within few days.

D&C Histopathology – Focal cystic hyperplasia. No atypical hyperplasia or malignancy.

6 mths follow up was done and patient was asymptomatic till that time.

Endometrial thickness of 2 mm was noted.
