Amrish Kumar, Anima Prasad

Background: Many clinicians encounter cervical lesions that may or may not be associated with cytologic abnormalities. Such abnormalities as ectropion, Nabothian cysts, and small cervical polyps are quite benign and need not generate concern for patient or clinician, whereas others, including those associated with a history of exposure to diethylstilbestrol, cervical inflammation, abnormal cervical cytology, and postcoital bleeding, should prompt additional evaluation.Aim of the study: To clinicopathologically analyze lesions of uterus and cervix. Materials and methods: The study was conducted in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the medical institute. For the study, we selected women who presented to department with complaints of vaginal discharge, inter menstrual bleeding, post coital bleeding and post-menopausal bleeding. A total of 60 women were detected with uterus and cervix lesions. These women were subjected to a polypectomy and the specimen was sent for histopathological examination to the pathology department in 10% formalin. They were studied grossly and multiple sections taken. The specimens were processed in automated tissue processor. Results: We observed that the most common lesion seen in patients was uterine polyps (diagnosed in 43.4% patients). Cervical endometriosis was second most common lesion (20% patients).Conclusion: Within the limitations of the present study, it can be concluded that the most common lesion in the study population was uterine polyp which was diagnosed in 43.4% of patients. Other lesions such as cervical polyps and cervical endometriosis were also seen in 15% and 20% patients respectively. Keywords: Uterine lesions, uterine polyps, cervical polyps.
