Two hundred charts of infertile patients who admitted from April 1995 until March 1996 at Mirza Koucha Kkhan Hospital, retrospectively were reviewed. In this study, the results of hysterosalpingograms and laparascopy of all patients were evaluated. The goal of this study was: whether polypoid alterations and endometrial hypertrophy were a cornerstone sign for endometriosis. Among 32 patients who showed endometrial hypertrophy or polypoid hypertrophy only 3 has had endometriosis in laparascopy which were proved by histopathology, while 22 out of 168 with normal hysterosalpingograms revealed endometriosis. In conclusions: hypertrophic alternations and polypoid changes of endometrium could not be a good sign for endometriosis, and normal hysterosalpingograms do not rule out the endometriosis.
