Xanthogranulomatous endometritis: an unusual pathological entity mimicking endometrial carcinoma

M Makkar, MK Gill, DP Singh

Abstract


Xanthogranulomatous endometritis is an unusual pathological entity mimicking endometrial carcinoma. This shows sheets of foamy histiocytes alongwith other inflammatory cells. We, hereby, report a case of 45 year multigravida female with irregular menstrual history, clinically diagnosed as carcinoma and histopathologically turned out as xanthogranulomatous endometritis. So, this condition should always be dealt with caution, and pathologists and clinicians should be aware of it.

Keywords: Africa, Endometrial carcinoma, Histiocytes
