SB Patil, S Narchal, DG Paricharak, SS More

Abstract


Endometrial osseous metaplasia is a rare pathological condition with mature bone in the endometrium and can be a cause for menorrhagia and infertility as bone in the endometrium acts like intrauterine contraceptive device. We report one such case with brief review of literature in a 28‑year‑old woman presenting with history of menorrhagia.

Keywords: Chronic inflammation, Endometrial stromal metaplasia, Heterotopia
