We would add to this that with the addition of p53/Ki-67 immunostaining to cases where nuclear atypia appears in only a small proportion of the collected material, the sticky issue of cytological EIN and EIC/EmGD can oftentimes be resolved.

Normal Endometrium homeostasis during the menstrual cycle by eliminating senescent cells from the functional layer of the uterine endometrium during the late secretory and menstrual phases of the cycle. The endometrium undergoes continuous cyclic changes of cell death and proliferation. Apoptosis is seen in the stromal cells throughout the menstrual cycle, but is scarce in the glands of proliferating endometrium, becoming maximal only in the glands of menstruating endometrium. Morphologically, some glandular cells degenerate into cells with small, round, or oval nuclei with homogeneous, dense chromatin and a moderate amount of well-defined, dense cytoplasm that we interpret as apoptosis.

The few unclassified benign endometria generally represented physiologically unclassifiable postmenopausal states of the endometrium; and, similarly, those cases that showed either cystic glands (6%) or minimally to moderately symplastic nuclei (6%), were classified as benign but abnormal. In summary, about 92% of uteruses with histologically normal endometrium afforded totally normal cytological outcomes. None of the cases was classified as neoplastic. Benign Endometrial Abnormalities The endometria of 355 hysterectomies were benign, disclosing only abnormalities such as disordered proliferation, benign hyperplasia, noncyclical bleeding, or polyp.
