Amera Anjum, K. Tabassum

Abstract


Asherman or Fritsch syndrome is also known as intrauterine adhesions. It can lead to partial or complete dysfunction of the endometrium. It affects women of all races and ages equally suggesting no underlying genetic predisposition for its development. The incidence is 40% after D and C. It is mostly due to vigorous curettage of endometrium causes scarring and occlusion in the uterine cavity or it may also be due to pelvic infections. Often, patients experience menstrual irregularities, recurrent abortions and infertility. A female married woman aged about 41 years came to gynaecology OPD, National Institute of Unani Medicine (NIUM) hospital, Bangalore, in 2015 with the complaints of menstrual irregularities and infertility. On the basis of signs, symptoms and imaging techniques such as USG, X-ray, hysteroscopy and laparoscopy, the case was diagnosed as Asherman or Fritsch syndrome due to prolonged retained fragment of Cu-T in the myometrium.
