Background & Objective: Adenomyosis is a prevalent gynecological disorder among women with no specified causes. It is characterized by nonspecific symptoms, and can present itself as abnormal uterine bleeding, abdominal pain, menstrual disorders, and the like. Its diagnosis is made based on the pathologic histological examination of hysterectomized samples. This study aimed to evaluate the correlation of adenomyosis with other benign endometrial disorders in hysterectomized samples.
Materials & Methods: In this paper a total of 413 patients who referred to Rouhani Hospital of Babol, form 2012 to 2017, and underwent a hysterectomy surgery with pathological reports confirming the diagnosis of adenomyosis, were studied. After reviewing the medical records, the patients’ data, including their age, weight, number of deliveries, place of residence, and main complaints at the time of referral as well as benign endometrial pathologies correlated with adenomyosis, were examined. Finally, the obtained data were analyzed using statistical tests.
Results: The prevalence of adenomyosis in this study was 21.7%. The patients’ most common complaints were abnormal uterine bleeding (86.4%), dysmenorrhea (39.2%), abdominal pain (31.2%), dyspareunia (21.1%), mass outflow (15%), and pelvic pain (9.4%). In the current study, the benign pathologies correlated with adenomyosis were leiomyoma (52.5%), uterine polyp (11.9%), adenomyoma (5.1%), and hyperplasia (0.5%).
Conclusion:  In the present study, the prevalence of adenomyosis was high and abnormal uterine bleeding was the patients’ most prevalent complaint. Moreover, leiomyoma had the highest correlation with adenomyosis.
