Abstract

Research is ongoing into the mechanisms of abnormal uterine bleeding, including bleeding from organic etiologies, where there is an intrinsic uterine lesion. Most of the current studies are focused on abnormalities of angiogenesis. By elucidating these mechanisms, targeted therapies can be developed. This article reviews the literature on pathologic mechanisms involved in bleeding from organic etiologies.
