We present a retrospective hystopathological study which comprised a number of 23 endometrial carcinomas, hospitalised and operated in the Gynecology Clinics of the Emergency Hospital of Craiova. We have analysed the following aspects of the previous mentioned cases: the average age at diagnosis, the tumoral grading, the miometrial penetration degree and the existence of the local or loco-regional invasion. The correlation of the differentiation level with that of the tumoral progression allowed us to observe the fact that while the well differentiated invasive endometroide adenocarcinomas were limited at the level of the uterine body, the moderated and the poorly differentiated ones associated, in some cases, beside cervical invasion and metastasis in structures situated at some distance, a deep myometrial invasion.
