Keywords:Endometrial polyp, Simple polypectomy
AbstractA 30-year-female presented to gynaecology OPD with history of polymenorrhea for two months. Cervical scrape smear was negative for intraepithelial lesion/malignancy. The importance of sending the tissue for histopathological examination cannot be undermined considering the fact that the differential diagnosis includes malignancy.
