    • Abstract:
      Background: Abnormal genital bleeding is a common cause of medical consultation in patients during adolescence. In this period, the main cause of genital bleeding is metrorrhagia in relation to anovulatory cycles due to immaturity of hypothalamus- pituitary-gonadal axis. Among the uncommon causes of bleeding at this age is the endometrial polyp. Case report: We report a 13 year old girl with abnormal uterine bleeding due to endometrial polyp, suspected during a pelvic ultrasound, removed by hysteroscopy, and confirmed by histological analysis. Discussion: Despite its low incidence, endometrial polyps should be included in the differential diagnosis of adolescents presenting menstrual disorders, particularly in those with no response to hormonal therapy and endometrial thickness in ultrasound.

    • Abstract:
      Antecedentes: El sangrado genital anormal es una causa frecuente de consulta en la adolescencia. En este período, la principal causa de sangrado es la metrorragia asociada a ciclos anovulatorios producto de la inmadurez del eje hipotálamo-hipofisario-gonadal. Dentro de las causas infrecuentes de sangrado genital anormal en ese período está el pólipo endometrial. Caso clínico: Presentamos el caso de una niña de 13 años cuya causa de sangrado correspondió a un pólipo endometrial, sospechado por ultrasonografía, resecado mediante histeroscopia y confirmado mediante estudio histológico. Discusión: Pese a su baja incidencia, los pólipos endometriales deben ser considerados como parte del diagnóstico diferencial en adolescentes que consultan por trastorno menstrual, particularmente en aquellos casos sin respuesta a la terapia hormonal y donde la ultrasonografía muestra engrosamiento endometrial.
