Progestins can provide hormonal contraception either alone or with estrogen, and prevent EH development associated with unopposed estrogen.

Therapeutic options for management of endometrial hyperplasia

Precursors of corpus cancer. The ability of this compound to inhibit uterine growth is attributed to its ability to antagonize estrogen action and apoptosis-inducing activities [ ]. This device releases a constant amount of LNG inside the uterus and effectively opposes the estrogenic effect [ 97 ]. The WHO classification system, which is the most commonly recognized system, use cellular complexity, crowding of the endometrial gland and the presence of cytological atypia to categorize pathologies as simple or complex hyperplasia, with or without atypia Table endometrimFig.

Further research on the cellular signaling pathways that control endometrial cell proliferation and development of EH, as well as targeting various mutations and SNP in pathobiology of EH will help to identify novel targeted therapeutic agents to improve the management of EH.

EH represents a continuum of histologically distinct processes, starting from simple EH without atypia and then progress to complex EH with atypia, followed by well-differentiated endometrial carcinoma Fig.

Megestrol acetate MA is a steroidal progestin specifically, hydroxylated progesterone with predominantly progestational and antigonadotropic effects that has endomeyrium shown to have the potential to inhibit proliferation in the uterus and treat EH. The 2-[piperidinoethoxyphenyl][4-hydroxyphenyl]-2H-benzo b pyran, identified as an anti-estrogenic agent, is a nonsteroidal, triaryethylene and triarylpropenone compound which was found to inhibit uterine growth [,].

The first cases of endometrial carcinoma related to tamoxifen use were reported in [ 73 ]. In addition to elevated estrogen endoemtrium, obesity causes chronic inflammation that can promote hyperplasia and cancer development [ 8 ].


Anastrozole was also found to be an interesting new modality for the treatment of EH in obese postmenopausal women [ ]. EM, a novel antiestrogen, acts as a pure antagonist of the transcriptional functions of estrogen receptors alpha and beta. Currently, the recommended treatment approach for EH includes; cyclic hiperplasi therapy, GnRH therapy, and hysterectomy.
