When we talk about cytological diagnosis of endometrial disorders then we also consider the pos-sibility of visualization conditions and pathological changes in the corpus of uterus by direct sampling with uterobrush. It can be performed without hospitalization and anaesthetic procedures with less discomfort for the patients. The representative samples provide cytological reports with the guidance for further diagnostic procedure. Cytological findings of uterobrush samples may indicate which patients have endometrial changes and require further treatment. The aim of this report is to show the benefit of using the uterobrush and cytological analysis through the reviews of different cases, for example: finding atypia in patient with the endometrial hyperplasia under the gestagen therapy or diagnosis of squamous carcinoma or granulomatous inflammation in the endometrial samples. We want to demonstrate that satisfactory direct endometrial sampling can detect endometrial pathological changes and are suitable for noninvasive monitoring of the symp-tomatic patients, so it should take place in the algorithm for patients with endometrial disorders.
