Objective: To evaluate the histology and histochemistry of endometrium in dysfunctional uterine bleeding (DUB). Materials and Methods: This was a prospective study conducted in Regional Institute of Medical Sciences, Imphal during the period between 1 st December 2004 and 31 st August 2006. A total of 50 cases of DUB and another ten matched normal subjects were selected. Endometrial samples taken between the 21 st and the 24 th day of the menstrual cycle and at random for continuous vaginal bleeding were studied with conventional H and E, periodic acid schiff and alcian blue stains. Results: Endometrial patterns of DUB were proliferative (44%), secretory (20%), irregular ripening (14%), atrophic endometrium (18%) and irregular shedding (4%), respectively. Conclusion: The commonest types of endometrium in DUB are proliferative and secretory endometrium is seen in all the normal subjects.
