Endometrial osseous metaplasia: Presentation of two rare cases related with infertility, and their hysteroscopic approaching

Objective: To present two cases of patients diagnosed of endometrial osseous metaplasia related with infertility and their hysteroscopic approaching.

Design: Case report.

Setting: Two clinical cases diagnosed and treated at Institutional University Hospital. Patients: Two premenopasual women diagnosed and treated in our Center.

Interventions: Transvaginal ultrasound scan, diagnostic hysteroscopy and hysteroscopic removal of bone fragments. Main Outcome Measures: Ultrasound scan during further clinical follow up.

Results: Both patients underwent a diagnostic hysteroscopy, and removal of all the bone fragments with total resolution of their pathology.

Conclusions: Endometrial osseous metaplasia is a rare pathology that should be suspected in patients with a history of secondary infertility, several miscarriages and curettages, that present with an ultrasound image compatible with an intrauterine device. Hysteroscopic approach is the best diagnostic and therapeutic option.
