Background: The aim was to see, compliance to minimum data information in carcinoma endometrium reports, in a team of 13 pathologists, and also to analyze these parameters e.g. tumor size, type, grade, depth of myometrial invasion, lymph node yield, pTNM stage etc. Materials and Methods: During the period of 2008-2010, from the files of Pathology department of our hospital, reports of 114 cases of carcinoma endometrium, who were operated in house, were analyzed. Results: The median age was 58.04 years and median tumor size was 4 cm. Endometrioid adenocarcinoma was the most common type (82.5%), followed by malignant mixed Mullerian tumor (MMMT) (6.1%) and Serous carcinoma (3.5%). Grade 2 was the commonest tumor grade (42.1%). Less than half of myometrial invasion was seen in 50% of the cases and more than half of the myometrial invasion was seen in 46.5% of cases. (Information was not available in four cases). Parametrial involvement was seen in 5.3% cases. The pTNM stage was not mentioned in 71.9% reports. The median lymph node yield was 15. Conclusion: The compliance to adhere to and to provide minimum data information in carcinoma endometrium reports is generally good. Lymph node yield is reasonable. Mentioning of pTNM staging is to be done more meticulously. Use of proformas/checklists is recommended.
