The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of the etiologic factors of postmenopausal uterine bleeding and the recur­rence rate of uterine bleeding before total hysterectomy. Six hundred and twenty-eight patients (mean age 52.2) with postmeno­pausal uterine bleeding were studied. Atrophic endometrium was found in 522 cases (83.1%), carcinoma of the endometrium in 70 cases (11.1%), proliferative endometrium in 29 cases (4.6%) and secretory endometrium in 7 cases (1.1%). The recurrence rate of uterine bleeding was very high in carcinoma of the endometrium, moderate in proliferative endometrium and low in secretory and atrophic endometrium.
