Abstract

1. 1. It has been too widely accepted that functional uterine bleeding is almost invariably associated with endometrial hyperplasia, but in our experience with 83 consecutive cases about 14 per cent are associated with secretory endometrium. 2. 2. Forty-one cases of functional uterine bleeding associated with secretory endometrium are studied in detail. (a) In most cases the complaint was simple menorrhagia. (b) Secretory endometrium was found during bleeding which lasted for as long as thirty-four days, and it was also found after prolonged bleeding associated with corpus luteum cysts, suggesting the possibility that with functional uterine bleeding secretory endometrium may persist for a long period of time.
