Transvaginal ultrasound examinations were performed just before D + C. at 61 patients suffering from metrorrhagia. Histological findings were compared to the endometrial thickness. There were 6 adenocarcinoma among the examined patients. The endometrium thickness was more than 10 mms in all of the cases. Five of the patients having malignant disease were postmenopausal. Based on these results it seems to be that the transvaginal sonography could be an useful additional test in the oncological examination for the postmenopausal women.
