On the basis of 120 cases, the authors discuss the diagnostic problems of Asherman's syndrome. They propose hysterography in all cases where amenorrhea, hypomenorrhea, sterility or infertility develop after curettage during the gestation period and puerperium. They describe the technical difficulties of X ray examinations, the appraisal of medical certificates and the problems of differential diagnosis. The diagnosis of intrauterine synechia is usually based on roentgenography, but uterine sounding must also be performed, and these findings must be compared with the symptoms.
