Endometrial Hyperplasia

  • Rita Iovine Demopoulos


Endometrial hyperplasia is the result of persistent, prolonged estrogenic stimulation of the endometrium. The commonest cause is a succession of anovulatory cycles, but hyperplasia may also result from excessive endogenously produced, or exogenously administered estrogens.
