1103 cases of endometrial hyperplasia were diagnosed between January 1, 1978 and December 31, 1987 at the Department of Anatomy and Pathological Histology of the University of Trieste. Of these, 58% were cases of cystic glandular hyperplasia, 38% of adenomatous hyperplasia and 4% of atypical hyperplasia. Subdividing the period examined into two five-year periods, it was found that the rate of incidence of endometrial hyperplasias was more than doubled, this increase having been caused above all by cases of cystic hyperplasia. Distribution by age classes of subjects suffering from different hyperplastic forms suggests that cystic glandular hyperplasia is not a precursor of the adenomatous form, whereas the latter and atypical hyperplasia might constitute a continuous spectrum of potentially precancerous lesions.
