From 1980 to 1989, 145 patients of histologically proven adenocarcinoma of the endometrium were seen and treated at the Department of Radiotherapy, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, Majority of the patients (84/145) presented with FIGO stage I disease. Relationship of myometrial invasion to grade was highly significant (p < 0.001). One hundred and seven patients were treated by surgery in combination with pre-operative or post-operative radiotherapy. The importance of various prognostic factors was assessed and grade of the tumour had statistically highly significant effect on survival (p < 0.005). Postoperative radiotherapy is recommended in patients with poor prognostic factors.
