Postmenopausal uterine bleeding of nonorganic cause.

Abstract

Eighty-nine patients with postmenopausal uterine bleeding were studied focusing on the nonorganic causes of bleeding. Atrophic endometrium was found in 82%, proliferative endometrium in 7%, and secretory endometrium in 1% of patients. Carcinoma was uncommon, found in only 7% of patients. Hysteroscopy was an invaluable adjunct to dilatation and curettage in diagnosing bleeding due to atrophic endometrium as 42% of such cases yielded no tissue on curettage. The clinical entity of bleeding atrophic endometrium is discussed.
