The aim of this study is to evaluate hysterectomy procedures performed for benign conditions in terms of indications and histopatho-logical results. Retrospective analysis of 32 hysterectomy cases, which were performed between January 2011 and Decem-ber 2012, was conducted to review indications and histo-pathological diagnoses. The most frequent indications for hysterectomy were abnormal uterine bleeding myoma uteri and endometrial hyperplasia, respectively. Other clinical indications were adenomyosis and uterine prolapse .The most common histopathological diagnoses reported for hysterectomy specimens were leiomyoma adenomyosis and endometrial hyperplasia respecti-vely. Endometrial polyp was diagnosed in specimens of patients. Endometrial atrophy was reported in patients. Cervical histopathology of hysterectomy materials revealed chronic cervicitis in of the patients. Due to the high coincidence of myoma uteri and endometrial hyperplasia, endometrial sampling should be performed in patients who are being considered for hysterectomy.
