Introduction: - Abnormal uterine bleeding is a common symptom of the patients in all age group. AUB is caused by a wide variety of causes in different age.Histopathological examination of endometrial biopsy is a major diagnostic tool in evaluation of AUB.

Aim:- To study the endometrial lesion in all age group presenting with AUB.

Methodology:-A retrospective study was designed to study of various D& C and endometrial biopsies sent for histopathological examination at department of pathology, Shyam Shah Medical College, Rewa, M.P. from 1st January 2019 to 30th June 2019.The study is based on the histopathological evaluation of  endometrial biopsies received during the  6 month of study period.

Result: - Total 87 specimen of  endometrial biopsies were collected  in 6 month of  study period, of which 5 cases excluded from study due to inadequate sampling and 82 cases were analyzed. We found that all age group was presented with AUB but women with age group 36-50 years were more common. 53.7%  cases were the organic cause and in which endometrial hyperplasia was most common. 46.3% cases were the functional causes in which proliferative phase was most common. 2 cases of endometrial carcinoma found.

Conclusion: - Histopathological evaluation of endometrial samples can be used as first step for diagnosis of abnormal uterine bleeding.
