Endometrial hyperplaisa in a child

These ultrasound images of the uterus in a 12 yr. old female child with intermittent bleeding per vagina reveal- a) markedly thickened endometrium (3.3 cms). b) color doppler images reveal vascularity within the thickened endometrium. These images suggest endometrial hyperplasia (benign) in a child. The cause is presumably, increased oestrogen activity. Images courtesy of Dr. Richa Dikshit, India.
