Abstract

Recent statistics indicate that the incidence of endometrial cancer has decreased worldwide. As routine cervical smears are less effective in detecting endometrial cancer, many investigators have emphasized the importance of the direct endometrial cellular sampling. The purpose of the present study was to determine the performance charachteristics of endometrial cytology in the detection of benign, atypical and malignant changes, using cytological specimens collected with the Tao brush sampler. One hundred and seventy-four consecutive patients presenting with peri- and postmenopausal bleeding were included in this study and correlated with the tissue biopsies obtained from 82 of these patients. Among the 52 benign endometrial alterations there was one false-negative reading (sensitivity 66%). Of all the atypical cases 26 proved to be histologically benign. Correlation of the malignant cytological results with those of the histological diagnoses (2 false positive cases) showed an 80% sensitivity and 96% specificity. Our study clearly showed that endometrial cytology is useful for patients in the clinical practice. If a suspicious or malignant report is obtained, then an endometrial curettage must be performed.
