Abstract:The purpose of this study is to examine the histological types of uterine cancer in our hospital during the 2000-2009 interval. The data was collected from the Histopathology Exams (HPE) registers. Uterine cancer was discovered in 392 cases, representing 31,46% of all genital cancers (1246 cases). Most cases (371 or 94,64%) were represented by carcinomas, sixteen patients (4,08%) had sarcomas and there were also four cases of carcinosarcoma (1,02%) and one case of carcinoma-carcinosarcoma combination (0,26%). Endometrioid carcinoma appeared in 87,33% of all carcinoma cases. Twelve cases of sarcoma were endometrial stromal sarcomas and four were leiomyosarcomas. The mean ages of the patients were 61,71±9,06 years. After performing the t-test for mean ages of the patients, the statistically significant differences are those between the sarcoma cases and the entire uterine cancer group (p<0.000001) and between the carcinosarcoma cases and the entire uterine cancer group (p=0.000002).The results of our study are similar to those in previous researches regarding the frequency of different histological types and the median age. Uterine cancer, although less aggressive, still remains a serious public health issue in Romania as many cases are discovered too late.
