comment:

Stromal hyperplasia is characterized as a general increase in stromal tissue, smooth muscle, and connective tissue resulting in an increase in myometrial thickness ( Figure 1image opens in a pop-up window and Figure 2image opens in a pop-up window ). This may result in gross enlargement of the uterus.

recommendation:

Uterus - Hyperplasia, Stromal should be diagnosed and assigned a grade whenever present.
