GARCIA AYALA, Ernesto; CARDENAS MASTRASCUSA, Laura; SANDOVAL MARTINEZ, Diana  y  MAYORGA ANAYA, Henry. HIPERPLASIA ENDOMETRIAL: ANÁLISIS DE SERIE DE CASOS DIAGNOSTICADOS EN BIOPSIA ENDOMETRIAL. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2010, vol.75, n.3, pp.146-152. ISSN 0048-766X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262010000300002.

Background: Endometrial hyperplasia is an entity in which there is a proliferation of endometrial glands of irregular size and shape, with the highest proportion of glands on the stroma, resulting from excessive exposure to estrogen. Approximately 15% of curettages/endometrial biopsies of postmenopausal women with clinical symptoms of abnormal uterine bleeding is diagnosed this entity. Objective: To describe the incidence and pathological findings in curettage/endometrial biopsy in patients of a tertiary public hospital. Methods: A retrospective review of 22,048 surgical procedures performed in the University Hospital of Santander, processed in the Pathology Department of Industrial University of Santander in the period from 1 January 2005 and 31 December 2008, of which 1,750 corresponded to curettage/biopsy of the endometrium and in 168 of these histopathological diagnosis was made of endometrial hyperplasia. Results: We found that the average age of presentation in this institution was 44.8 years and that the greater percentage of patients (68.5%) were in the group of simple hyperplasia without atypia. In 19.7% of the cases had evidence of atypia. Conclusions: The mean age and percentages found by hyperplasia subgroups were relatively within limits with regard to other studies, although broadly outlined in a lower proportion of cases with atypia.
